Wichita, Kansas 2021-06-12 08:36:13 –
A heavy thunderstorm struck parts of south-central Kansas on Friday night. A storm broke out just before the cold front advanced. Generally, gusts of 60-70 mph have been reported. This was enough to knock down some power lines and tree branches. Some people haven’t been powered yet early Saturday morning. In addition, lightning strikes, road floods, and hail were frequently reported throughout Sedgwick, Butler, and Cowley County. Most of the hail was between the size of a penny and a golf ball, but law enforcement agencies reported hail up to 2.5 inches, the size of a tennis ball. The storm cleared up early Saturday morning.
After that, the cold front slowed down and began to stall. In other words, the cold front is losing momentum.
This may only be the result Just a little Humidity relief in south-central Kansas on Saturday. Other parts of the state benefit a bit more because of the drier air in place. Dew points range from the north and west of the south-central Kansas in the 1940s to the 1960s (high humidity) throughout the state.
Anyway, as the sun goes on, the clouds should clear and the maximum temperature should reach the late 80’s. Winds typically stay at 8-18 mph on Saturdays northeast of the Wichita region and southeast of West Kansas.
Tonight, we’ll be watching a small thunderstorm complex late Saturday night in southwestern Kansas and Oklahoma Panhandle.
The slight risk of bad weather is only to hug the display area of the KSN. Currently, these storms appear to be hail / wind threats, so monitor them as the day goes on.
Most of us can expect very warm predictions. With most of the extended outlook, you will see highs recover in the 90s.
There will be a slight humidity relief to end the weekend, but you won’t notice any major changes in the Wichita region. Humidity remains relatively high in the rest of the forecast and appears to be mixed with slightly lower levels of days. After all, it’s June!
At the moment, a large storm system is not clear, but the possibility of a slight pop-up thunderstorm is not out of the question. The overall pattern is pretty dry until next week.
