Showers have been popping up this evening in portions of southwest Kansas. There is a Marginal Risk for an isolated storm to briefly bring small hail and gusty winds to this part of our viewing area early tonight.
There is a Severe T-Storm Watch posted in pink to our south. This is where the greatest lift and moisture are associated with this storm system.
Through the overnight, storms out west will track eastward. Wichita will pick up some of this rain after midnight.
Showers will depart early Thursday with clearing skies. Winds will be out of the northwest through the afternoon. Temperatures will be mild again in the 60s and 70s, so this wind direction won’t impact them too much.
By Friday, our winds turn southerly and temperatures will go up! Highs will be in the 70s and keep up there through much of next week.
Over the weekend, showers and thunderstorms return. Those attending prom will want to keep the rain gear handy just in case as rain moves in Saturday evening and lingers through part of Sunday.
