There’s an enhanced risk for severe weather in northern Kansas Sunday evening. The main threats will be damaging wind gusts and large hail, but a few tornadoes will also be possible. These storms will begin to move into northwestern Kansas, from the west, around 7-8 p.m. and they will move to the east, right along the state line with Nebraska. They will move into Goodland around 11 p.m., Colby around 12 a.m., Quinter and Norton around 1 a.m., Plainville around 2:30 a.m. and Mankato around 3 p.m. Around 3:30 a.m., these storms will push to the northeast, into Nebraska and the threat for storms will end for Kansas.
Monday will be hot, with highs back in the upper 90s. The heat index will be around 105°, so the Heat Advisory will continue tomorrow for south central Kansas. A cold front will move through south central Kansas tomorrow night, bringing more storms and cooler weather. Highs will drop back into the upper 80s Tuesday through Wednesday.
Storms will form in southwestern Kansas around 5 p.m. Monday and they will move to the east, into central Kansas around 8 p.m. These will end around midnight. There isn’t a great chance for severe weather with this chance for storms.
Another round of scattered showers and storms will be possible Tuesday afternoon through evening, especially for western Kansas.
Rain chances will end for the rest of the week. Highs will get close to 90 on Thursday, then we’ll get into the low 90s Friday and Saturday.
