Hot and muggy morning; highs in the lower 90s
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) – Meteorologist Jake Dunne says it’s another unusually warm and humid morning with waking temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Later in the day under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies, expect to near-record highs in the lower 90s.
A slow weather forecaster will invade western Kansas tonight. A few storms are possible, especially over southwestern Kansas, and one or two can be strong, producing small hail and gusty winds.
After a hot, dry Thursday, storm chances return across Kansas Thursday night. Some of the storms (along and north of Highway 50) will be severe, producing large hail, damaging wind gusts and heavy rain.
Additional storms are possible Friday (morning) over south-central Kansas, and these can be strong or even severe. Later in the day, a cold front will sweep through the region, pushing the storm threat to our east.
The weekend looks cooler across the front, but afternoon high temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s keep us a few degrees above average.
