Meteorologist Jake Dunne says temperatures this morning are similar to Tuesday morning and the rest of the day will follow suit. Highs in the upper 80s and low 90s are on target for middle August.
Powerful storms that caused considerable damage last night have all but left the state. Any lingering showers will soon be history and most of the day will be quiet. However, storms are possible once again across northwest Kansas this evening and tonight. Some of the storms will be severe producing damaging wind and large hail.
With not much change in the weather pattern through the weekend, our forecast will remain largely unchanged as well. Mainly dry days with a healthy dose of sunshine will give way to scattered storms during the evening and overnight hours. The pattern tries to change this weekend and beyond meaning drier and hotter conditions for Kansas.
