WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Jake Dunne says a stationary front is slowly moving back into Kansas and it will set the stage for scattered showers and storms throughout the day. Nothing severe is expected this afternoon, but some of the rain will be heavy at times, especially east of the Wichita area. 

A developing storm system on top of the state should open the door for strong to severe storms tonight. Expect the activity to begin over northwest Kansas after 5 PM and move southeast across the state tonight, arriving in south-central Kansas between 10 PM and 12 AM. The primary concern is damaging wind gusts followed by some small hail and heavy rainfall. 

Temperatures will trend up today, into the middle and upper 80s, before a cold front sends us back into the upper 70s and lower 80s on Thursday and Friday. 

The weekend will get off to dry and warm start on Saturday before another cold front brings a risk of rain/storms to the state Saturday night followed by a cooler Sunday.
