Wichita, Kansas 2021-06-12 19:59:27 –
Humidity is crawling from central and eastern Kansas as the cold front that passed yesterday continues to be pushed eastward. However, the cold front was not very effective in preventing the heat from returning to Himawari this weekend, as daytime highs returned to the 80s and 90s this afternoon.
It’s calm for most people tonight. Temperatures return overnight to the 1960s, and showers and storms can occur in southwestern Kansas tonight.
There are several opportunities for rain throughout the state over the next few days. The marginal risk of an isolated violent storm clips the Oklahoma Panhandle and parts of southwestern Kansas. Damaged winds and larger hail are our main concerns late tonight and overnight.
A storm occurs in southeastern Colorado and continues to slide eastward until evening.
These storms will soon disappear by Sunday morning, leaving some clouds to start the day.
The sunshine will be fully restored by the afternoon to keep the temperature in the late 90’s on Sunday afternoon.
Western Kansas is once again in the spotlight as a storm complex gathers over Nebraska Panhandle at the end of Sunday and stormy weather can continue in northwestern and southwestern Kansas until Monday morning.
From midnight Sunday to Monday morning, there is a slight risk of one or two thunderstorms in parts of western Kansas. Damaged winds and large hail are our main concerns.
From Monday to Tuesday, showers and storms can occur from the northwest. The pattern will start to get even hotter by the middle of next week, as some places will approach the late 90’s again and can be close to three digits. Cold fronts are caught by the weekend, raining by the next weekend, and increasing the likelihood that temperatures will return to the late 80’s and late 90’s.
