Spotty, brief showers continue to move through central Kansas early this evening.
Then, the focus turns to SW KS and the OK Panhandle where stronger storms will develop after 7 PM.
A few of these storms early this evening could produce large hail and damaging winds. This is also where the heaviest rain will fall.
This wave will march east overnight and move into Wichita just before dawn on Thursday. The morning commute will be damp.
By afternoon, the winds will pick up and there’s still an isolated chance for a shower or a storm especially from central Kansas eastward.
Depending on the placement of the front, spotty storms will once again be possible southeast of Wichita by Friday evening.
Friday is also the day temperatures will trend back to what we typically think of August: hot and humid! Over the weekend, highs will be in the middle 90s with heat indices near 100 (we can thank recent rains for that!).
