Late last night, Leoti was bombarded by LOTS of strong winds again. As far as rain and hail, I think that they all went around us. South of Leoti in Grant County, baseball-sized hail was reported. I also heard that baseball-sized hail made its way to the Manhattan, Kansas area. Chances are that if these reports are true, not much remains of any crops in those areas.
A high wind warning for all of Western Kansas has now been posted. Sustained winds of 25-40 mph with gusts up to and including 55 mph are expected through 9:00 p.m., CDT are expected.
If you happen to be out on country roads and highways, be forewarned that with winds such as these, we need to be especially concerned when passing by large semi-trucks, etc.
Hang on to those hats, steering wheels and moo moos!!!
