Meteorologist Rodney Price says look for isolated showers and storms this evening especially north and west. Lows for most of the state will drop into the 70s.
A slow-moving cold front will make it into northwest Kansas by Sunday morning and then into central Kansas by the end of the day. Highs north of the front won't be as hot: in the 90s! Meanwhile south of the front, triple digit heat is slated again. A Storm Team 12 Weather Alert day remains in effect for Sunday because of the extreme heat.
For next week, that big area of high pressure that has heated up the Plains recently will reform over the western U.S. That means the storm track will slip back into Kansas, as weather systems move from northwest to southeast. The best news of all: temperatures won't be as hot!!
