WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Thunderstorms will weaken and move out of the area later this evening, but the risk is still in Kansas for Wednesday and Thursday with potential hail and high winds. The concern shifts to western Kansas for Wednesday evening, and on Thursday, much of the state will have a chance for stronger storms.

Highs will start cooling down with much of the state seeing lower 80s Wednesday. Clouds will thicken up during the day, and most of the storm chances will be across the west after 4pm.

On Thursday, expect a mostly cloudy sky with scattered storms popping up in western Kansas first, and then spreading farther east late into the evening. There will be more concerns for hail and wind through the afternoon and evening. Highs will be falling back to the 70s.

At the end of the week, the weather calms down for Friday with a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be in the 80s with lighter winds.

Most of Mother’s Day weekend looks dry, but a few showers may develop over southern Kansas on Sunday.


Tonight: Evening storms, mostly cloudy overnight. Wind: E/SE 10-20. Low: 62.
