Morning rain wraps up; more humid for Father’s Day weekend


The last of the morning rain moves out, with more breaks of sunshine on tap for this afternoon. However, the wind will pick up out of the south as the day goes on. Sustained winds will range between 15 to 25 mph, but gusts could exceed 30 to 35 mph at times.

That stronger south wind will do a better job of filtering in some slightly humid air, to go along with high temperatures between the upper 70s and mid 80s.

Scattered storms will fire up off of the Rockies and in western Kansas this afternoon, and will trek east into northeast Kansas late this evening into the overnight hours. It’s not a great chance, but if those storms can maintain enough of their strength while traveling across the state, there could be a slight risk for some western and southwestern areas. The main threats would be high winds and hail.

Otherwise, more clouds build in for tonight. The rain may cool things down temporarily, but it will still be a mild night with low temperatures in the 60s.

Most wake up dry Saturday morning, with a mostly sunny sky during the day. It won’t be quite as breezy for Saturday with a southwest wind at 5 to 15 mph, but it will be hotter. Highs will climb into the mid to upper 80s, to go along with even higher humidity. That means it could feel as hot as the low 90s at times during the afternoon.

Late afternoon into the evening is when another chance for scattered showers and storms will be introduced. There is the slight risk for strong to severe storms, but once again, the main threats would be for damaging wind gusts and hail.

Another mild start is expected for the morning of Father’s Day with lows in the 60s. There will still be a slight stickiness to the air on Sunday, but it won’t be nearly as humid as Saturday. Highs in the low to mid 80s for Father’s Day will go along with the best chance of rain being along I-70 and to the south.

Even lower humidity gets ushered in for Monday. A mix of sun and clouds during the day will be partnered with high temperatures in the low to mid 80s. 

More 80° days are on tap for Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, as well. However, the warm weather both of those days will go along with more periodic chances for showers and storms.
