Stormy pattern continues with risk of very heavy rainfall, isolated severe weather

Thunderstorm chances are once again increasing for the KVOE listening area.

Hail and high winds are possible with stronger storms overnight Friday through Saturday morning, but TV-13 meteorologist Drew Switzer says the main concern is scattered to widespread heavy rain.

A flash flood watch is already in effect for Greenwood County and southeast Kansas from Friday night into Sunday morning. Hail and high winds are also concerns with the stronger storms.

Much of the KVOE listening area picked up healthy rainfall totals early Thursday. The KVOE studios received just under an inch and the Municipal Airport got right at an inch yesterday, but eastern Emporia residents called in reports of 2 to 2.4 inches of rain and folks in Chase County also had up to 2.5 inches of rain.

Shower and storm chances diminish Saturday afternoon, but the risk of thunderstorms now continues into the second half of next week. We'll keep you updated on KVOE and KVOE.com. Get instant weather alerts through KVOE's Twitter and Facebook pages if you haven't already signed up.
