WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that showers on Thursday could turn into a chance for some thunder by Friday, but severe weather is not in the forecast for Kansas either day. After a cool week, we can expect temperatures to start climbing as we head toward the weekend.

There’s still a threat of some frost along and east of the Flint Hills for early Thursday with low temperatures falling into the 30s. Highs will mainly be in the 50s with a cloudy sky and some afternoon showers, especially over central and eastern Kansas. The warmest weather Thursday will be in western Kansas with highs in the 60s.

Friday has a chance for showers in the morning, but scattered thunderstorms are on the way for south central Kansas during the evening. Amounts could reach 1 inch along and southeast of the Turnpike. Highs will be back up in the 60s.

Look for a much warmer weekend with 60s on the way for Saturday and temperatures approaching 80 by Sunday.

Next week has more active weather on the horizon. A severe threat may setup in Kansas for Tuesday. Check back for details.
