WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that storms will increase in coverage during the overnight, especially over south central and eastern Kansas. Western Kansas will have a chance of scattered showers, but the rain is not expected to be heavy in the west.

Be prepared for some heavier rainfall on the Kansas Turnpike early Tuesday with temperatures in the 50s and 60s. Some afternoon sunshine returns to western Kansas where highs will reach into the lower 80s. Farther east, it will be a day with highs in the 70s and some off and on showers could linger into the afternoon.

Drier weather returns late Tuesday night and Wednesday. Highs will rebound into the mid and upper 80s for midweek, but another cold front is on the way Thursday to cool off temperatures for the end of the week.
