After a warm Sunday afternoon, it’ll be mild and breezy overnight with lows mostly in the 50s and 60s with a few high clouds.
The fire danger will be extremely high across western Kansas Monday afternoon and evening, from roughly Smith Center to Hays to Dodge City.
Wind gusts will again top out over 40 mph in parts of central and eastern Kansas and a wind advisory is in effect.
We’ll see more warmth and wind. Look for summer-like highs in the 80s. I wouldn’t be shocked to see a few backyard thermometers hit 90 degrees in western Kansas.
The next storm system will give us rain and thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday. Severe weather is possible with this system but the upper level storm system appears to be slowing down some, which could have some impacts on timing and severity.
Currently, the Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk of severe weather outlined from McPherson and Strong City south toward Wichita and Hutchinson, then down into Oklahoma. Large hail, high winds and heavy rain look to be the biggest concerns right now.
Over the next seven days, storm chances on Tuesday and Wednesday will be followed by a mid-week cool down. By late week, warmer temperatures will be back.
