Tornados, large hail possible Tuesday

A significant severe weather day is expected on Tuesday with an outbreak of severe storms possible, according to the National Weather Service.


Supercell storms capable of producing long track tornadoes and destructive hail up to baseball size will be possible across much of central and eastern Kansas, especially from the afternoon through about midnight.


Authorities are encouraging you to be prepared and review your severe weather safety plans ahead of time.
