Extreme heat ends as storms take over

By  | 

Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says the extreme heat is on the way out.

Scattered storms will begin to form in southwestern Kansas around 5 p.m. Monday. These storms will move to the east, into south central Kansas around 8 p.m. They will move to the east, into southeastern Kansas, out of the area by midnight.

A few of these storms tonight could be strong, with the potential for hail and high wind gusts.

Tuesday, "cooler" air will take over with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. We'll stay in the upper 80s to low 90s through Thursday.

A few more showers and storms will be possible Tuesday evening, mainly in western Kansas. Those will end overnight.
