The early summer sizzle carries on. Wind picks up right where they left off, gusting at times to 45 MPH. Record breaking warmth in southwest Kansas with highs in the middle 90s!!! That’s some serious heat.
Fire danger is extremely high. No outdoor burning. Fire weather alerts have been extended into Friday due to the windy warmth.
It’s a battle of the seasons tomorrow. There is a threat for severe weather, especially across eastern Kansas and western Missouri. All modes of severe weather are possible, including tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds. Please stay weather aware.
While storms explode to the east, rain spreads across western Kansas through the day. Fierce winds will follow behind this cold front with gusts to 65 MPH. A High Wind Watch is in effect for northwest Kansas Friday into Saturday.
As the cold air invades Friday night, rain switches to snow. Little accumulation expected.
Snow showers linger into Saturday morning for northern Kansas. Fierce winds could make travel tricky during this time period.
The thermostat gets turned OFF on Saturday. A slight recovery by the end of the weekend as sunshine returns and temps warm through the 50s.
