Meteorologist Rodney Price says storm chances will increase from west to east overnight. Lows for most of the state will drop back into the 60s, while Wichita will be near 70.
Skies are forecast to turn partly cloudy on Saturday. Highs should reach the mid and upper 80s to lower 90s. Storm chances will return Saturday night but by Sunday morning, the bulk of the rain should be limited to eastern Kansas. We'll see the heat build in a big way with highs in the middle to upper 90s Sunday afternoon.
The heat sticks around for much of next week.
