Forecasters say large, damaging hail, a few tornadoes and high winds are possible in parts of the Central Plains. The National Weather Service has placed Central Kansas, including the Salina area, in an enhanced risk for severe weather.
The Storm Prediction Center said the greater chance for strong storms Thursday afternoon would be in northern Kansas, with a lesser chance from extreme southern Nebraska into the northwestern Ozarks.
Storms are also possible in the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles and far northwestern Arkansas.
Areas south of a cold front should see the strongest surface heating Thursday, increasing the potential for high winds, even for a few hours after dark.
There is a risk of hail and possibly tornadoes early during storm development, with the threat changing to high winds later, according to the forecasters.
