Earlier today, we had a couple of waves of storms move through the state with the highest rainfall totals to the east of our viewing area.
This evening and through the overnight, there is a chance for an isolated shower or storm. However, most places should stay dry and quiet.
Temperatures today warmed into the 80s and 90s. There were even some triple-digit temperatures in SW Kansas!
These winds will become stronger on Friday from the southwest. This means our temperatures will be well into the 90s.
Most of the state will feel heat indices in the lower 100s.
Friday evening storms will bubble up out west and work eastward. Some could be severe with damaging winds and hail.
We will continue to see rounds of storms over the weekend. Because of this rain and expected cloud cover, temperatures will drop into the 80s. Winds are also expected to stay strong.
Please be weather aware if at the lake or traveling for the holiday weekend. Some storms could be severe, capable of producing damaging winds, hail and heavy rainfall that could lead to localized flooding. Not to mention, these storms will be charged with lightning — always remember that if you hear thunder you are close enough to be struck by lightning, so please head indoors.
