Summer-time weather returned on Wednesday as highs reached the 90s in most areas, with a couple of triple digits out there too. Thankfully, the heat will not last long as a cold front drifts southeast across western and central Kansas in the overnight. Near that front is where a few showers and storms are expected to form, along with gusty north winds. Lows are expected to dip down into the 50s and lower to middle 60s behind the front. Ahead of it, upper 60s to lower 70s will prevail.
The front will continue to track southeastward and out of Kansas tomorrow with breezy north to northeast winds. Some widely scattered showers and a few storms will be possible over the southcentral and southeast. Out to the west, skies will turn partly cloudy. Highs tomorrow will reach the upper 70s in the northwest to the lower to middle 80s in the southcentral.
A fair amount of clouds will be around the state Friday with any sprinkles or showers limited in nature. Highs will stay in the lower 80s.
Hit and miss showers and storms will probably be confined to western Kansas this weekend as highs stay in the 80s statewide.
