Severe Weather Chance For Lawrence Friday
We are dealing with a fairly strong upper-level storm that will slide into the region for Friday. While we may see some sun during the day, we are looking at t-storms developing for the afternoon and evening.
The timing is dependent (as usual) on several key factors. We will have ample moisture in place with temperatures into the 70's. This will give us plenty of instability for thunderstorms to develop.
I expect most of the storms to fire in the afternoon from Nebraska, Eastern Kansas with the strongest storms well south into Arkansas. The biggest question is how strong the storms over NE Kansas will be. The biggest factor for our immediate area will likely be large hail and high wind, although the isolated tornado threat can't be ruled out.
We will keep our eyes on the storm situation, so stay tuned to Channel 6 and the LJWorld for the latest.
