Wichita, Kansas 2021-06-08 13:46:21 –
At the beginning of an already warm day, temperatures rapidly reach 80 degrees Celsius. You will also notice that the humidity is high. Today’s dew point lasts from the 60s to the 70s. So this intense humidity lasts until Tuesday, but will rise further for the rest of the week.
Today’s highs are in the late 1980s in south-central Kansas and can reach 90 in many parts of the west. It is expected to be sunny and partially cloudy in Kansas in the southwest and northwest. At peak heating times, it is unlikely that you will have another or two pop-up showers this afternoon. Most remain dry, and this activity appears to be confined to Southeastern Kansas. These will fall apart by sunset.
You need to monitor northwestern Kansas all night. A storm complex appears to be occurring throughout Nebraska along a dry line and trying to break into Kansas. I think it will fall apart as it is, but it’s worth a look.
Also, because the area is hot and humid, you may have pop-up showers in central and eastern Kansas on Wednesdays. Most of us will be able to see the hottest temperatures of the year coming on Thursday so far. The state as a whole can reach nearly 100 in the early to late 90’s, and even in parts of southwestern Kansas. Keep calm! The humidity becomes very strong in the middle of the week. It will be a little easier by the weekend, but only a few times.
