Temperatures took a cooler turn today with highs in the 80s. Due to recent rain across much of the state, the humidity remains high.
We are about to return to more summer-like standards over the next 24 hours. Highs Monday will soar back into the middle 90s. We won’t get a break from this at all this week.
A few chances for storms will be sprinkled in as the week goes on. Overnight, a few storms are possible along the Kansas/Oklahoma state line. Severe chances at this point are on the lower end of the scale.
More storms will develop in western Kansas early Monday evening.
These will cluster together and work eastward across northern Kansas Monday night. Some of these storms will be severe with damaging winds and large hail combined with heavy rainfall.
There is also a chance southern Kansas could see a storm or two Monday night.
We will be under a huge area of high pressure for the July 4th holiday. This means it will be sunny and hot. Storms are expected to return Thursday into Friday with dry skies next weekend. Join me tonight for a look at how hot temperatures will get in your hometown this week and when you can expect more rain. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
