Teachman’s Take: Evening Severe Storms Carry into the Overnight

Kansas and Wichita Weather Forecasts by Storm Track 3

The atmosphere doesn’t want to stay calm for too much longer.  A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for southwestern Kansas and the Oklahoma Panhandle until 10 PM.  

This activity is inching closer to the state line.  

Storms will race across the state into the overnight. 

They will reach the Wichita area by midnight.  I anticipate these storms to remain on the strong to severe side once they reach the metro.  Initially, the storms will produce large hail and damaging winds in western Kansas. 

As the night lingers, these storms will congeal into a line.  At this time, damaging winds will be a big concern.  Heavy rainfall will also accompany these storms.

Unsettled skies will turn sunshiny Thursday as the heat builds.  Friday will be our hottest day where some temps will reach into the 100s.  The heat index will be in the lower 100s!  

Cooler temps work through over the weekend.  While Saturday will be toasty in the 90s, the 80s aren’t too far behind.  How long will the cool down last before the heat gets cranked up again?  I’ll let you know and continue to keep you updated regarding tonight’s severe storm threat on KSN News. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
