It has been a BEAUTIFUL day! Temps ranged from the 40s in northeast Kansas to the 60s in the southwestern part of the state.
As winds kick in from the south/southeast and stay there overnight and through tomorrow, temps will accelerate.
With continued dry conditions, we will be monitoring things closely Friday afternoon as there is a high fire threat. Right now, a Fire Weather Watch is in effect for western Kansas. My suspicion is that this will expand heading into Friday.
Over the weekend, a storm system will move into the Plains. The closer you get to the Kansas/Oklahoma state line, the better chance for seeing a rain shower or hearing some thunder. It will occur during a small window on Saturday. This won’t break the drought by any means, but at least it’s something.
Once this moves out, temps will drop heading into Sunday. Join me tonight, I’ll let you know how cool it gets and if there are any chances for rain next week on KSN News. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
