Chances for showers and thunderstorms have been added to Monday’s forecast in the Wichita metropolitan area – arriving earlier than anticipated.
Rumbles of thunder as the morning commute was in high gear confirmed the rain threat, and the National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for portions of Butler, McPherson, Marion and Harvey counties until 8:45 a.m.
Hail the size of quarters and winds of 60 miles an hour are possible with these storms.
Highs could reach triple digits in Wichita later today, forecasters say.
