Meteorologist Mark Larson says severe storms will threaten eastern Kansas this evening and there's more rough weather on the way to our state, at times, through Saturday. Large hail and destructive winds will continue to be threats.
Storms will develop across eastern Kansas this evening. Severe weather is likely with the strongest storms that will pass from north to south through the eastern half of our state. Large hail and damaging winds will be threats until midnight. Storms will fade or push south into Oklahoma by early Friday morning.
Scattered storms will be possible Friday and Saturday nights but the daytime hours this weekend should be dry. Weekend highs will climb into the mid 90s statewide and it'll be very humid.
Early next week we'll see fewer storm chances but temps could top-out around 100 with high humidity driving heat index readings over 105.
