Overnight storm activity crosses Flint Hills for second straight night image

Thunderstorms pushed across the KVOE listening area again overnight, bringing spotty heavy rain but no severe weather.

The KVOE studios got 0.35 inches since midnight. Other totals:

*Emporia Municipal Airport: 0.68 inches

There were also isolated power outages from Emporia south to the Eureka area. Less than 60 Westar customers were offline overnight, mainly in Lyon and Greenwood counties. About 40 Lyon-Coffey customers in Lyon and Coffey counties went part of the night without power. The Lyon-Coffey outages have been restored.

The activity early Sunday followed widespread severe weather Thursday night, with over an inch of rain, 70 mph winds and ping pong ball sized hail in some area locations. Storm activity was limited mainly to Osage and Wabaunsee counties early Saturday.

There is a marginal risk for severe weather along and east of the Kansas Turnpike for potential activity Sunday afternoon and evening. Hail and wind are the likely concerns.
