Above are Tornado Watches that have gone into effect within the last hour. Expiration times are noted in white inside of each watch box. Very large hail and tornadoes are possible with any storm that forms in these areas, and strong and/or long track tornadoes are possible, especially in the Oklahoma and eastern Kansas watch areas.
Already, one storm is strengthening rapidly right out of the box, almost half way between Anthony and Wichita, KS.
This storm bears watching and is moving in the general direction of Wichita.
I will post as many pertinent updates as I can this afternoon, but most likely on Facebook and/or Twitter rather than here on the blog (as I can get the word out much faster that way), so please follow me there if you haven't already...and most of all, stay safe!
