Severe weather raked across the region this afternoon as possibility of severe weather continues into Wednesday and overnight Thursday.

“It’s become a little bit more uncertain,” says National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Flanagan. “With perhaps some morning and early afternoon showers and thunderstorms across the area, some of the models that we have are showing less likelihood of severe weather during the afternoon and evening and even into the early overnight hours [Thursday].”

Flanagan, who joined Manhattan Broadcasting’s live coverage of severe weather on Tuesday continues, “Still that slight risk from the storm prediction center for some storms moving in during the evening, so we’ll just kind of monitor things here through this evening and see how that impacts tomorrow’s storm.”

The continuation of severe weather throughout northeast Kansas comes in the wake of a tornado that touched down late Tuesday afternoon in Westmoreland which caused significant damage to property and infrastructure, as well as one unconfirmed fatality.
