The National Weather Service said a stalled frontal boundary, combined with a system lingering over the southwestern part of the United States, will keep a persistent chance for storms in the region the rest of the week and into the Memorial Day weekend. The storms will likely be scattered, but strong storms cannot be entirely ruled out.

Today, thunderstorms will move into northeast Kansas with the strongest storms able to support some small hail. Further development of storms may occur this afternoon along a stalled front boundary, from central Kansas to central Missouri, with marginally severe hail possible.
