Warm start to the working week, storms expected later

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) – Meteorologist Jake Dunne says it is a warm morning across Kansas with wake-up temperatures in the 60s and the next day will follow. Under a mostly sunny sky, expect high temperatures in the lower to mid 90s and a strong and gusty wind from the south.

An increase in cloud cover will lower temperatures somewhat on Tuesday. Highs around 90, however, are ten degrees above average. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible tomorrow afternoon and evening, but the main event should drag on until Wednesday (night).

A slow moving storm system will bring multiple rains and storms to the state starting Wednesday that will last through the weekend. The best bet on getting wet is on Thursday, followed by diminishing odds from Friday through Saturday.

While several days of potentially heavy rain are worrying, widespread storms are not expected right now.
