Your quiet Saturday will persist into the overnight, as high clouds drift in and lows drop to the 40s.
The winds were light across central and eastern Kansas thanks to an area of high pressure overhead. As the high moves away from us, we’ll see gusty south winds over 30, even 35 mph. Now the winds won’t be nearly as strong in the west, but low humidity and temperatures well into the 80s spell extreme fire danger. Sunday is NOT the day to be doing any outdoor burning.
High clouds will thin out as sunshine returns and those gusty winds take hold. Highs will top out in the 70s and 80s.
We’ll keep that forecast dry through Monday. It will also be quite warm early in the work week but you see the dip in temperatures by Wednesday thanks to a storm system that will give us rain and thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday.
Severe weather is possible with this system but there’s still some details to work out with the timing and some of the weather ingredients. Currently, the Storm Prediction Center is watching the area from McPherson and Strong City south into Oklahoma. Needless to say, it’s late April so heads up.
A mid-week cool down will give way to rebounding temperatures late next week.
