Meteorologist Dean Jones says that rain will not make it into Wichita until early morning Sunday. It looks like a cloudy and soggy Sunday.
Sunshine will dominate the central and eastern parts of Kansas today with light winds and high temperatures reaching the upper 80s and low 90s. Storms are possible during the late afternoon across western Kansas.
High pressure over Iowa controls the weather pattern across Kansas this morning, however an upper level disturbance will move out of the Rockies into the Plains this evening. Strong to severe storms (1" hail, wind gusts to 60 m.p.h.) are possible for extreme southwest Kansas during the evening hours, however intensity should diminish overnight as the weather complex moves into central and eastern Kansas. Rain will hold off in south-central Kansas until the early morning hours. Expect off/on showers and a few storms Sunday. Rainfall amounts of 0.50" to 1.50" are possible through Monday morning.
Behind this slow moving weather system a cold front will help push "cooler" air into Kansas to start the work week. Highs will reach the upper 70s and low 80s, while overnight lows will be in the 50s and low 60s. A small taste of Fall.
