What We’re Tracking:
- Hot again Wednesday
- Storm chances return late – some strong to severe
- Hot again this weekend
Today looks slightly warmer than yesterday, and more humid, with afternoon highs in the middle 90s and dew points well into the 70s. Expect it to feel like it’s near 100° throughout the afternoon hours. Expect mostly sunny skies trough the day, and a little bit more of a breeze. At least that will help stir up the air a bit!
Storm chances increase, mainly after midnight and linger through the early morning hours Thursday. Some of the storms could be strong to severe, at least as they initially move into northeast Kansas from Nebraska. So, our northwestern counties have a higher chance of experiencing damaging wind gusts and larger hail. The storms should weaken as they move southeast through the area.
The rain and cloud cover gives us a brief break from the heat on Thursday, but it’ll still be warm as we’ll be near 90°. Scattered showers and storms could make a return late Thursday, but will be highly dependent on what happens tonight.
The heat returns for the weekend with some slight storm chances late Saturday into Sunday. We may have to wait a few days to hit that 100° mark because of this, but with the heat continuing to build into the middle part of next week, it’s probably on the horizon.
