Triples are good in baseball, however in the world of Kansas weather triple digit heat is never fun! Just like yesterday, there is enough moisture in place across south central and eastern Kansas that a late afternoon "pop-up" thunderstorm may develop here or there, but don't count on it. The heat of the day leads to convective thermals rising through the moist (humid) atmosphere. The net result is cumulus clouds (puffy white clouds) and if these clouds grow large enough one or two may produce a shower or thunderstorm. Often with this type of heat, when the rain finally reaches the ground, gusty winds occur with the storm. Wind gusts usually between 40-50 mph are possible. Again, not everyone will see these afternoon storms, however consider yourself lucky if one is occurring over your location; it will be the only relief from the relentless heat. Highs today will be 100 degrees or higher west of the Kansas turnpike and in the upper 90s over the flint hills and eastern Kansas.
