Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that much of the state will FINALLY have some sunshine and dry weather on Wednesday, but rain and thunderstorms show up for the second half of the week.
Storms will depart into the night with skies beginning to clear out. Low temperatures will fall into the 30s for far western Kansas, but 40s and 50s on the way elsewhere. Sunshine will warm temperatures back into the 70s for much of the state Wednesday afternoon.
Storm chances will ramp up for areas southeast of the turnpike Wednesday night. Much of the state will be stuck under clouds Thursday with highs in the 60s (north) and 70s (south). Storms Thursday afternoon could be severe with hail and high winds. There will be more heavy rainfall too.
Storms will be possible over central and southern Kansas Friday afternoon and into the night. There will be evening and nighttime storms into the holiday weekend too.
