Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a big warming trend is about to kick in for the Plains over the next several days. It will feel like summer once again with the heat and humidity arriving.
Isolated evening storm chances fade with some lingering clouds overnight. Low temperatures will slip back to the lower 60s with light south winds.
It will be windy on Tuesday, especially in central and western Kansas. South winds will gust to 30-35 mph and afternoon highs will be getting back into the 90s. Scattered storm chances return to northern Kansas late in the evening, with a few possibly becoming severe.
Much of this week will have storm chances as an active weather pattern unfolds. Thunderstorms will be scattered over central and northern Kansas Wednesday evening. A few could be severe. And another threat of damaging storms will arrive into Thursday evening, especially over central and eastern Kansas.
