Heat takes over for the start of the work week

By  | 

Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says it's going to get hot for the start of the week, with storm chances returning by mid-week.

Storms will be possible Sunday night in southeastern Kansas and a few of them could become strong, possibly producing large hail and damaging wind gusts. These storms will be possible between 5-11 p.m. before they move to the southeast and come to an end.

Sunshine will take over for the start of the week and it's going to get hot. Highs will reach the mid to upper 90s on Monday, but it will feel more like 100-108° when you factor in the humidity.

Those dangerous heat indices will continue on Tuesday, with actual highs around 100°.

A cold front will move into the state from the northwest Tuesday night. This will bring a chance for showers and storms overnight, and scattered storms off and on Wednesday.

Highs will drop to around 90° on Wednesday and the mid 80s on Thursday behind the cold front.
