Lawrence can expect to be spared from thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon. But some severe weather could threaten the area late Tuesday night.

"Clouds are slowly going to start increasing and we are expecting thunderstorms to roll in this evening," said Ross Janssen, 6News meteorologist.

"We can't totally rule out some severe weather. What we're looking at is gusty winds and large hail," Janssen. "It's not going to be until way later this evening. We're probably looking at closer to midnight. The best time for rain and thunderstorms is going to be after 9 o'clock."
