As the higher humidity and warmer temperatures linger over Kansas tonight, a storm system will be approaching from the southwest part of the US.
An area of low pressure and warm front could lead to scattered thunderstorms over central and northern Kansas after midnight, and some of the storms could produce small hail and heavy downpours. Although a few of the storms may briefly turn strong, severe weather does not look to be a big threat tonight.
Very strong winds should be expected on Sunday as drier air moves in from the west. Temperatures will likely reach the 65-70 degree rang over most of the state, with some areas, including Wichita, getting above 70 by the end of the day. Most of Kansas will see a fair amount of sunshine during the afternoon.
A strong cold front will move through Sunday night, and temperatures Monday will be back in the upper 30s and low 40s (actually below normal for a change)
