Wild weather hits the midwest over the weekend

Wacky weather moved through a large part of the U.S. this weekend.

Storm track Meteorologist Kyle Borchert shows us the weekend that was.

A wild weather-maker whipped through the sunflower state this weekend. Severe thunderstorms dropped hail the size of baseballs in southeast Topeka and continued to drop large hail into Jefferson County Saturday evening.

These same thunderstorms blew winds over 70 MPH through our area as well, numerous trees were blown over and stripped of their branches.

Places in the Rockies received a foot of snow on the back-side of this system, certainly a rare occurence for this tme of year.

The same strong cold front sparked a line of severe thunderstorms from Lincoln, Nebraska to Dodge City, Kan. on Sunday.

Numerous tornadoes pummeled central Nebraska, as high winds and large hail littered central Kansas.

Two tornadoes touched down in the sunflower state Sunday, one south of Hays and the other near McPherson.

We will still feel the effects from this cold front for days to come. Temperatures will plummet into the 30s by Tuesday morning, as highs will fight to reach the 70-degree mark this week.

Oh the weather of Kansas.
