Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a change is on the way to Kansas with warm and dry conditions returning for the middle of the week. High temperatures are expected to be back to near normal soon.
Any chance for showers will fade quickly shortly after sunset with skies clearing through the night. Low temperatures are going to fall back to the 40s with diminishing winds.
Look for more sunshine around the state on Wednesday with highs getting back above 70 for most of the state. The winds should be rather light with high pressure sliding through Kansas.
It does get warmer on Thursday with highs near 80, but as a cold front slides in Thursday night to northern Kansas, some storms may develop. The rain chances will spread south and east into Friday, as some slightly cooler temperatures arrive for the start of the holiday weekend. It looks like most of our rain chances will be over by Sunday so the second half of the weekend should turning out nicer than the first.
