Large hail and damaging winds may hit Wichita overnight

The National Weather Service is urging residents of the Wichita area to be prepared for the possibility of large hail and damaging straight-line winds overnight.

The hail could be as large as baseballs, the weather service warns. If you have a garage or other way to protect your vehicles, use it.

The strong storms could continue through Friday morning before shoving east, forecasters warn. Tornadoes are not considered a threat with these storms.
