Scattered showers, not as windy

Meteorologist Jake Dunne says showers and storms across central and northern Kansas will soon fade away, but additional showers (this morning) and isolated storms (this afternoon) are possible across central and east Kansas. The wind won’t be as strong as Monday, but we’ll see some gusts from the south up to 30 mph.

If you’re heading to the Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson, expect an isolated shower this morning followed by a small chance of an afternoon storm. In between the day will be partly sunny and breezy with temperatures climbing into the upper 80s this afternoon.

Any evening storms around the state are expected to diminish overnight. Most of us should remain dry tomorrow and Thursday morning before a strong cold front moves through the state.

Showers and storms, possibly strong to severe, on Thursday afternoon and night will give way to clearing and cooler conditions on Friday when the state will see highs in the 70s and 80s.
