Meteorologist Mark Larson says big weather changes are on the way this week, after another hot, humid day Monday, we can expect storms and big time heat relief Tuesday through Thursday.
Look for a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky Monday with a few, spotty, afternoon showers or storms. Monday highs will top-out in the low to mid 90s with a gusty southerly wind blowing across central and eastern Kansas.
A front will slowly sink into our region late Monday, then stall across our state Tuesday afternoon, bringing Kansas a good bet to get wet.
The front will straddle our state through at Thursday, keeping on and off rain and storm chances in our area along with more tolerable temps in the mid to upper 80's through week's end.
