Big-time heat blows into Kansas

By  | 

Meteorologist Mark Larson says get set to sweat, big-time heat will blow into Kansas Friday with soaring temps as summer arrives tomorrow followed by more strong or severe storms this weekend.

Temps will start to soar Thursday afternoon with highs ranging from the lower 90s across southwestern Kansas to the mid to upper 80s elsewhere under a mostly sunny sky. Southerly winds should stay under 20 mph today.

A few showers or a small cluster of strong storms could roll though parts of western and northern Kansas tonight but most of us will stay dry through tomorrow morning.

Looks like it'll be very windy, hot and humid for the first day of summer Friday with temps soaring into the low to mid 90s across southern Kansas. The northwest corner of our state won't be quite so hot with highs topping-out in the mid 80s. Southerly winds will gust over 30 mph at times through tomorrow afternoon.

Another front will slowly plow into our region tomorrow night then stall-out across central or eastern Kansas this weekend. Most of the storms will roll through during the evening and overnight hours bringing threats large hail, damaging winds, heavy rains and flooding.
