Storms hit some spots of northeast Kansas about 24 hours ago. Some locations experienced heavy rain, frequent lightning and wind near 50mph while others got a light shower around sunrise.
It became very hot and muggy for the start of our work week, and numerous counties had a Heat Advisory posted for heat index values of 103-108. Even with some afternoon clouds, many locations still reached the mid 90s. Dew points that were in the mid 70s will come down as a front passes so midweek will feel so much better.
Another overnight storm complex is trying to impact some early this morning, but the main impact is well south. Any thunderstorms will be gone by school bus time with a partly cloudy sky. It will be muggy early, but a north wind will bring the humidity levels down for the afternoon.
Greater Topeka Tuesday
Wind: N 10-15
We likely get a two day break
from heat and humidity. Expect pleasant late-August conditions late today
through Thursday before high pressure to the south begins to build back into
Highs may approach 90 degrees Friday with low 90s through the upcoming weekend. It will gradually become breezy and muggy as well. Spotty storms may occur in that period as well as upper waves glide near or across. Probabilities are too low right now to make much of a headline.
