Clouds remained overhead for much of the day, keeping temperatures down briefly. As the sunshine returned late this afternoon, we soared to nearly 100° in Wichita.
Spotty showers continue to track to the east over Kansas early this evening.
Much stronger storms are developing in Colorado.
These storms will cluster together and move into Kansas as the night continues. Initially as the storms enter our state, they could produce briefly gusty winds and small hail. These storms will weaken as the night continues, but still produce quite a bit of rainfall and frequent lightning.
Leftover showers and thunderstorms are possible early Tuesday.
We will start to clear by afternoon. Depending on how quickly the front clears, more storms will form along the Kansas/Oklahoma state line, although the majority of the activity should stay to our south.
We will set up for drier and sunnier conditions for the rest of the work week. Temperatures will rise back into the 90s and keep climbing through the weekend.
