The next 7 to 10 days definitely won’t be dull and boring across the Great Plains. Temperatures will have wild swings and there are several chances for showers & storms lined up.
As for this evening, it will be muggy in the metro with temps in the 70s. Areas of fog will develop throughout the state as the night continues. Some of this fog could be thick, so please keep this in mind for your Tuesday morning drive into work.
Temperatures will be divided overnight like they were today. Warmest in the southern half of the state compared to the north.
There is an isolated chance for a shower this evening and into the overnight in northern Kansas.
Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures will heat up. We’ll have widespread 80s on Tuesday with us reaching the 90s by Wednesday.
While this front may work north through Wednesday, it will sag back to the south by Wednesday night and into Thursday. This means showers and thunderstorms will be possible. This will also knock our temps down a hair.
Heading into the weekend, we will have more temperature swings, depending on the placement of the front. And, as each disturbance swings through, showers and thunderstorms will be possible. It won’t be a weekend washout, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we have a few severe storms before this pattern dries out early next week.
Here is a look at two different models through early next week and their projected rainfall totals. This will drastically change due to different atmospheric factors. Needless to say, we are setting up for a damp stretch across Kansas through mid-October!
