WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - There’s no letting up in the heat for Saturday as dangerous temperatures return for the afternoon. Afternoon highs will top 100 degrees and additional humidity will make it feel much hotter. Please exercise caution as the heat wave continues awhile longer.

One thing that will be slightly different is that the Kansas wind will be stronger out of the south, as gusts will approach 30 mph. Skies will be mainly sunny both Saturday and again Sunday.

A front arriving late into the weekend will stir up some storms for northwest and north central Kansas Sunday evening, but it will not be widespread. This means that not everyone will have rain, but the chances will be out there to wrap up the weekend. Highs will still be near 100 on Sunday.

The heat does ease up a bit early next week with chances for widely scattered storms for Monday and Tuesday. Don’t expect huge amounts of rain with the chances ahead.
