Meteorologist Mark Larson says scattered storms and passing showers will be common here in Kansas through week's end. Severe storms will be possible but widespread rough weather or heavy rain are not expected at this time.
Wednesday afternoon will be mostly cloudy with scattered storms developing. Some could be severe with quarter-size hail, gusty winds and brief heavy rains, all threats.
Highs will range from the mid 70s northwest to the lower 90s across southeastern Kansas along with gusty winds.
Storm chances will continue tonight and into early Thursday. We'll cool-off a bit Thursday with highs in the 70s to near 80 statewide.
Look for more rain and storm chances across the southern part of the state Thursday night into Friday morning.
Rain will be possible early Friday too but then by afternoon, we'll dry-out and see a bit of sun with highs in the low to mid 80s.
