It has been a hot and humid day across Kansas. Under sunshiny skies, temps have heated up into the 90s.
Heat indices are in the triple digits.
A Heat Advisory stays in effect until 7 PM.
We are watching the skies closely in Nebraska where a Tornado Watch is in effect until 11 PM. This includes one of our counties, Furnas county, in the southwestern part of the state.
Storms up there will cluster together and sweep southeastward into the overnight. Folks in north central Kansas may get a few of these stronger storms. We’ll be watching it as it tracks to the KC Metro by midnight.
A few leftover showers and storms are still possible through midday Saturday in north central Kansas.
Otherwise, temps will trend down slightly and the humidity will begin to drop. Temps will be much better by Sunday! It will still be breezy on Saturday with lighter winds to end the weekend.
The heat will return next week with a few chances for storms. I’ll detail it tonight on KSN News at 5, 6 and 10. We’ll be live from the Wichita Riverfest as it kicks off! – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
