Sunday afternoon temperatures will top out near 110 under a mostly sunny to partly cloudy sky with southwesterly winds. New record highs could be set in several locations. A heat advisory remains in effect for central and eastern Kansas through Monday evening where heat index values will reach the 104-110 range for several hours each day.
Isolated storms will move through northern Kansas Sunday evening and will slide southeastward through early Monday morning. Another round of widely scattered storms will be possible Monday afternoon into early Tuesday morning but most of the activity should be very hit and miss with most of us missing any good moisture.
We can expect the heat beat to roll on though most of next week too as highs stay in the 100-105 range. There will be a decent chance for showers and storms by week's end but until then expect dry weather and the severe drought conditions to continue.
