Meteorologist Mark Larson says we'll see more storm chances and tolerable temps through week's end before the heat cranks-up again.
Storm Team 12 Weather Alert; Severe storms this evening
Thursday's early showers and storms will fade followed by decreasing clouds into the afternoon with highs topping-out in the lower 90s.
Another round of storms will be possible Thursday night, especially across northwestern Kansas. A few strong storms are likely Thursday evening with wind gusts to 70 mph and locally heavy rainfall so we've issued a Storm Team 12 Weather Alert for the severe storm threat.
Storms will roll southeast, and weaken, into Friday morning.
Friday afternoon, look for a mix of sun and clouds with "cooler" highs in the mid to upper 80s but the humidity will stay high. A few showers or storms will develop over southern Kansas by late afternoon and linger through the evening but they shouldn't be severe.
Most of our weekend should be dry with highs in the low to mid 90s.
