Meteorologist Jake Dunne says after a hotter than normal September weekend, summertime heat plans on sticking around during the work week. Highs today will climb into the low 90s and the humidity will make it feel a few degrees hotter… possibly as high as 100 degrees in eastern Kansas.
A strong and gusty breeze from the south will help cool things off this afternoon. In fact, we should probably get used to the windy conditions because like the heat, the wind has no plans on leaving as well.
Thursday brings with it our first chance of showers and storms. However, it is a minimal threat and many of us will remain dry. A better bet for thunderstorms arrives on Thursday night and Friday followed by scattered storms Friday night and Saturday.
