Not much change for surface conditions, except that SPC is increasing the risk of large hail with the thunderstorms this afternoon/evening with the highest risk centered on the Hutchinson area. Friday afternoon should be in the mid 90s and it could be close to 100 on Saturday with very uncomfortable humidity. A cold front will pass through Saturday night bringing more storms but cooler conditions for Sunday.
Launch conditions Saturday: Winds from the south at 5 mph, temps in the mid 70s, scattered clouds.
Tracks are shifting eastward now, with a nominal 100 kft flight landing a few miles southwest of Newton if launched from the Hutch airport.
