The National Weather Service has put out a flash flood warning for Sedgwick County until 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Numerous thunderstorms are expected to continue throughout the early evening across south-central and southeast Kansas, according to the Weather Service. The storms may range from strong to severe, capable of quarter-size hail and down-burst winds of up to 60 mph.
Just less than 2.5 inches of rain fell in about an hour, the Weather Service reported. While the storms are moving south of Wichita, more rain is possible later in the evening.
Tuesday’s rainy weather canceled a community meeting on a proposed sales tax and the City of Wichita’s 2015 Proposed Budget, Dale Goter, the city’s government relations manager, said in an e-mail. The meeting, originally scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Osage Recreation Center, will be rescheduled.
Thunderstorms remain in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday night into Friday.
