The National Weather Service allowed a severe thunderstorm warning for southeastern Douglas County to expire at 8 p.m. Friday.
However, a tornado watch remains in effect for Douglas County and much of eastern and southeastern Kansas until 10 p.m. Friday.
The weather service warns that large hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes may be possible with Friday night’s storms.
A flash flood watch is also in effect for the Douglas County area through Saturday morning. The weather service says heavy rainfall on already saturated ground could produce flash flooding in a short amount of time.
