On Ronelle’s Radar: Soaring temperatures & unsettled skies

Kansas and Wichita Weather Forecasts by Storm Track 3

It’s another quiet start this morning with cool temperatures in the 30s and 40s and fair skies.

The only thing we’ll have to watch out for this morning is some fog and mist. There’s a Dense Fog Advisory up for portions of Southwestern Nebraska until 11am.

Skies will be partly cloudy today, turning mostly sunny at times. So we’ll get a lot more sun than how we started the work week. Sun and a stronger breeze out of the south will help high temperatures warm into the 60s across the area. Temperatures will get closer to 70 in Southwestern Kansas. It’s going to be a very nice Tuesday from Western to Eastern Kansas.

Skies stay partly cloudy tonight as a southerly breeze continues to pump mild air into Kansas.

Rain chances return by Wednesday and high temperatures warm up even more. An isolated shower or storm is possible but there’s a better chance that most of us will stay dry.

Highs warm into the 70s to low 80s with gusty winds out of the southwest. It’s warm, windy days like this when you don’t want to do any outdoor burning. Should a storm develop it could be strong with small hail and/or gusty winds. Rain and thunderstorm chances increase into Thursday and Friday which is when there could also be a stronger storm.

70s and 80s are looking likely Thursday too before temperatures start to cool off into the 60s and 70s Friday. By late day Friday colder air in the Central Plains will start to sag south and change rain to snow.

This change will reach the Kansas/Nebraska line through early Saturday morning but any accumulation in our northernmost counties will be very little to none as most potential snow will mix with rain. We’ll dry out over the weekend but it’ll be much cooler with highs in the 50s. Quiet conditions carry into the start of next week as temperatures start to work their way back closer to the 60s.
