|Wind scale in knots (multiply by 1.15 to get mph, i.e., 60 kt = 69 mph)|
Similarly, if you live roughly in the area from Great Bend to Dodge City, the forecasts of strong thunderstorms look reasonable there, as well.
If strong thunderstorms approach, today would be a great day to bring in lawn furniture, tampolines, and your car to keep them from being damaged and to keep the former from damaging surrounding structures if they should be picked up.
Since these are experimental forecasts, I cannot be sure they will be correct but the situation is well worth monitoring.
