Thunderstorms have gotten rowdy in western Kansas this evening, producing high winds, heavy rain and lots of lightning.
The best chance of rain overnight will be in the north and west. The farther east the rain goes, the more it will dry up. Lows fall into the 60s and 70s with a south breeze here in Wichita. A north wind will expand in the west.
By Sunday afternoon, we expect the front to still be northwest of Wichita, so the Air Capital will remain hot and humid.
An excessive heat warning will be in effect for parts of south central and southeast Kansas. Heat index values will likely reach between 105° and 110° during the afternoon.
Meanwhile, upper 70s to lower 80s are slated for the northwest as afternoon storms develop, especially closer to the front.
Through Sunday night, most of the rain moves southeast and behind that front, much cooler and drier air will be settling in for Monday.
The 7-day forecast shows that large drop in temperatures for the early week then a slow, gradual warming trend. Most of next week looks dry.
