A powerful storm will develop this weekend!

Before it does, we will have some action in the form of wind and a few storms. Wednesday will be very windy with south winds ranging from 15-30 mph. A cool front is expected to line up near the Kansas border late Wednesday then move into the far north and northwest parts of the state on Thursday.

As it does, some rain will be possible north Thursday morning and a few storms northwest Thursday evening. Storm chances will increase in the northwest on Friday then move into the state Saturday.

The areas of rain and storms will continue across the state through next Wednesday before ending. Much of this rain system will produce heavy rain totals.

Most areas are showing 2-5 inches of rainfall with some higher totals expected. Record rainfall will be possible. The highest totals as of now look to be west of I-35.

As strong as this storm is, some severe weather will be possible. Some severe weather looks possible late Thursday in the northwest. Cool and wet behind the front and warm, humid and wet ahead of it!
