Wichita, Kansas 2021-06-13 09:01:17 –
Some strong storms passed through Oklahoma’s salients this morning, but collapsed when pushed east. Kansas is quiet and dry, and you can start your day apart from one or two light rains.
Good news! Today’s dew point appears to be a little lower due to the high pressure on the eastern side (early 60s). That is, the humidity level is slightly lower for most people.
Apart from that, our temperatures get warmer in the late 1960s and late 1970s. Afternoon temperatures can reach over 90 in most of the states and will still feel like summer.
There are a few clouds today, but the sun shines brightly in the afternoon. In general, the wind deviates from the E / SE at 5-15 mph today.
In northwestern Kansas, watch out for possible thunderstorms from overnight to early Monday morning. Currently, the Storm Forecast Center is targeting KS in the northwest and west with a slight risk of stormy weather. In general, hail and strong winds are the main threats in these nighttime complexes.
The high resolution model suggests arrival times after midnight. Some of the latest trends have delayed this timing by a few hours and the exact placement is subject to change at any time. For now, it maximizes the chances of an all-night storm in northwestern Kansas.
The complex should lose steam as it travels south, but there is a slight potential for overnight storms in southwestern Kansas.
The main character of this week’s weather forecast is heat. Most of us should be at least 90 degrees for the next few days, but by Wednesday and Thursday it could be mid 90 degrees. Part of the western KS should also rise to nearly 100 degrees in the middle of the week. Humidity levels can be medium to high. People in the west were able to trap the slightly dry air during the week. Anyway, the season technically doesn’t start until 10:30 pm on June 20th, but it really feels like summer. The signs point to a little late week’s relief, but that only brings us back to the late 80’s.
