Storm chances continue as heat takes a break

By  | 

Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says storm chances are going to stick around in Kansas, but the heat will take a bit of a break over the next few days.

Storms will move into northwestern Kansas Tuesday afternoon. These could become severe, with the possibility for a few tornadoes, large hail, and damaging wind gusts. These will move into the state around 4 p.m. and they will move to the southeast through the evening, weakening as they push out of northwestern Kansas.

These storms will move into Dodge City around 10 p.m., Salina around midnight, and Wichita around 1 a.m. They will fall apart as they move to the southeast, through south central Kansas.

Wednesday, we'll start the day with lows in the 60s. It will be mostly sunny in the afternoon with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.

More storms will be possible Wednesday night. These will move into northwestern Kansas around midnight and they will move to the south overnight. That will put these storms near Hays around 1 a.m., Salina around 3 a.m. and then they will fall apart as they try to move into Wichita early Thursday morning.

Highs will stay around 90 through Thursday, with isolated storm chances returning Thursday and Friday night. Sunshine will take over for the weekend with highs returning to the low 90s.
