Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says a few storms can be expected across Kansas into the overnight hours, but chances will be going down throughout the weekend. The main threat will be lightning and some very brief downpours, but severe storms are unlikely this weekend.
Low temperatures will once again cool into the 50s for the west, but stay in the 60s for central and eastern Kansas. Storms should begin to fade by early Saturday morning.
Some peeks of sunshine can be expected for Saturday afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 80s with a south breeze developing. One or two storms may pop up across the area into Saturday night, but they will be so few and far between.
Sunday also looks warm with highs in the 80s. The rain chance doesn't drop to zero, but most of the day should turn out dry. South winds could turn a little gusty, but should be under 25 mph.
