One more day of excessive heat, then we are back to "normal" July temperatures for the work week.
A weak "cold" front will trigger scattered showers and storms later this afternoon into the overnight hours across Kansas. Severe weather is not expected, however stronger storms may produce small hail and gusty winds. The heat will continue ahead of this cold front with Excessive Heat Warnings in place across central and eastern Kansas until 8 P.M. Highs will range from the low 90s in northwest Kansas to near 100 in the south. The heat index will range from from 105 to 112 during the late afternoon. Scattered showers and storms tonight with overnight lows in the 60s and 70s.
A few showers across southern and eastern Kansas on Monday morning, otherwise partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies with isolated afternoon showers and rumbles of thunder possible. The good news, heat relief is on the way, while it won't be "cool", it will be relatively "cooler" compared to the 100s over the the last several days. Highs in the 90s will continue through the upcoming work week, with storm chances the greatest on Wednesday night and Thursday night.
