Meteorologist Mark Larson says look for more spotty storms to pop-up in the heat of the day the Tuesday and Wednesday followed by drier weather later this week and into our Labor Day weekend.
More scattered thunderstorms are expected Tuesday afternoon. A few storms will bring blinding rainfall and flood concerns. The heavy rain will be very isolated but if you get under the wrong cloud, look out for a patio-pound-er.
Tuesday highs will top-out in the upper 70s across the west and low to mid 80s over central and eastern Kansas.
Thunderstorm chances will continue Wednesday, but by tomorrow night, a weak cold front will push into our area ushering-in drier air and slightly cooler temperatures for week's end.
Right now, most of our holiday weekend looks relatively rain and storm-free with gusty winds and warmer temps climbing back to around 90 degrees.
