Everyone will be able to enjoy a much quieter start to the day. With the exception of an isolated shower or storm in North Kansas during the morning.
Skies are in fair shape and will stay that way through much of Friday, yielding good amounts of sunshine. An overnight breeze will become stronger out of the southwest at 15-30 mph. A hot breeze will send high temperatures into the middle and upper 90s.
Triple digits are possible in far Southwest Kansas. Even if there aren’t any triple digit highs, it’ll still feel that way with heat indices in the lower 100s. After 4pm there’s a chance for a storm or two in Western Kansas. Chances continue through the evening and could stretch into North Central Kansas overnight.
A strong or severe storm can’t be ruled out with damaging winds and large hail being the main threats. Spotty showers/storms continue out west Saturday with a better chance for the entire area by the time we get into Saturday evening and night.
Storm chances continue through the rest of the holiday weekend but will help cool us down into the 80s.
