Expect a mix of sun and clouds and gusty southerly winds this afternoon. A few isolated storms could develop in the heat of the day as a weak front slides into our area but most of the state will be dry and warm. Look for a few 90s over central and southern Kansas with afternoon highs in the mid and upper-80s elsewhere.
Our May heatwave will continue through the weekend with more upper 80s to lower 90s along with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.
Friday and Saturday will be dry followed by chances for scattered storms arriving late Sunday night into Monday.
Temperatures will finally moderate a bit early next week when highs fall back into the 70s.
