Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says after dealing with heavy rainfall and storms the last few days, a break is coming. Wednesday still has a chance to see scattered storms, but with drier and cooler weather arriving into Thursday, the chances for storms will be diminishing.
Pockets of flooding and lightning will be the biggest dangers with storms through the evening hours. Some storms may linger into the overnight, but they will be very spotty. Lows will range from the 50s in the northwest to near 70 around Wichita.
Once again Wednesday, isolated storms will pop up in the afternoon with heavy rains expected. High temperatures will mostly be in the 70s and lower 80s. Winds will remain light, and storms that do develop will be very slow to move.
As the drier air arrives into Thursday, clouds and rain chances will depart. Highs will be close to 80 Thursday afternoon with lower humidity and east breezes under 20 mph. Dry weather should continue for most of the state into the holiday weekend.
