WICHITA - Strong thunderstorms are possible this morning and again this evening in much of Kansas, including the Wichita area.

Forecasters warn that heavy rain, large hail, strong winds and even isolated tornadoes are possible with the storms. Hail could be as large as baseballs in southcentral Kansas, the National Weather Service reported.

Highs in the Wichita area should reach the low 80s. The bulk of the storms in the Wichita area should form after 4 p.m., the weather service reported.

Gusty south winds can be expected today and tonight, when lows will dip into the mid-60s. More thunderstorms are possible again on Wednesday.
