Warming trend continues

Meteorologist Mark Larson says the warming trend that started Mother's Day will continue through midweek, with afternoon highs soaring to near 90 for many, and we'll also stay dry for a few more days.

Tuesday will be toasty by May standards with highs soaring into the low to mid 80s and a fresh southerly breeze close to 20 mph at times later in the day.

More warm, dry weather will take us through week's end with highs in the mid 80s to around 90 degrees making them the warmest days we've seen so far this year. There'll be lots of sunshine through Friday too so plenty of time for rivers and high water to recede.

A storm system will plow out into the Plains from the west Friday night, driving a slow-moving cold front into western Kansas. Showers and storms will be possible with this front as it moves across our state through the weekend. Severe storms will be possible across western Kansas Friday night then shift to the southeast and south-central parts of our state Saturday.

Rain chances could linger through Sunday morning before the system moves away from our region later in the day. Right now it doesn't look like a weekend wash-out but we'll see some wet weather this weekend.
