WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Morning clouds and some patchy dense fog across Kansas this morning with temperatures in the 60s.

Dry weather will continue with rain chances later tonight across northern and eastern Kansas. A slight risk for severe storms across north-central and northeast Kansas after midnight.
A cold front will move through Kansas on Monday, bringing more chances of showers and storms. A few storms may be strong, possibly severe by late afternoon.
