Watch out for the storms heading toward Wichita, they are moving into some impressive dewpoints of around 70. With 25 to 30 knots at 500 mb and if they slow down some to 10 knots, then the storm relative shear could support a deep mesocyclone and possible tornado.
 
Flying eagle look to storm in Stafford County or northwest of Wichita. Tornado threat still looks possible next few hours.
