Morning Severe Storms Blow Through Central Kansas!

 

Monday morning, August 10, brought a wet and windy start to the work week as a cluster of storms moved over Central Kansas. Strong, damaging winds where the main threat from this system. These storms originated from the outflow of Colorado storms that occurred Sunday evening and had an eastward propagation across the state of Kansas. They were able to maintain their structure due to an upper level disturbance aloft, as well as a good amount of shear, instability, and moisture in the area.
