Meteorologist Mark Larson says look for a few passing storms then another long, dry, hot, stretch of weather is on the way to Kansas as we turn the calendar page to August next week.
Saturday's early showers and storms will fade then we'll see a mix of clouds and sun by afternoon with a few isolated storms possible over northern Kansas. Highs will range from the mid 80s to near 90 statewide.
More scattered showers or storms will pass through our area Saturday night into early Sunday morning but severe weather is not expected.
Sunday afternoon will be dry and warmer with highs climbing back into the mid 90s under a mostly sunny sky.
Next week the heat's on again when highs soar back to near 100 by Tuesday and stay there through week's end.
