Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says the stickiness in the air will lead to more chances for showers and storms in the coming days. Some rainfall could be heavy in spots and temperatures should cool down for the end of the week.
A few scattered storms may clip northwest Kansas this evening, but during the night, conditions should be quiet and warm. Low temperatures will drop into the 60s and 70s.
It looks like another muggy afternoon is in store for Kansas on Wednesday. High temperatures will warm into the lower 90s. Scattered storms may start developing across northwest Kansas during the late afternoon hours, and then they should drifting to the south. Gusty winds and some heavier rainfall is possible with the storms.
A cold front moving across Kansas on Thursday will keep the chance for a few storms in the forecast. High temperatures will be dropping from the 90s back into the 80s for the end of the week. Some heavier rainfall and gusty winds will be possible with stronger storms Thursday evening and again Friday. Most of the state will see highs in the 80s Friday afternoon.
