Drying out, hot week ahead
Rain chances ending as the heat intensifies this week
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Peyton Sanders says that rain chances will be diminishing into the week ahead as a stretch of summer heat arrives.
A few showers and storms could linger into the night mainly over southern Kansas, but most of the state will begin to dry out.
Temperatures Monday morning will start out in the mid 60s over western Kansas to near 70 over eastern Kansas. It will be a hot and muggy day as afternoon highs reach the low to mid 90s.
An area of high pressure will set up right over Kansas by Tuesday, and it will remain over the state for the entire week. This will bring several days of hot and dry weather with highs likely to remain near 100 degrees through the start of next weekend.
