Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible over parts of western Kansas this evening. The most intense storms will produce large hail and damaging winds. The activity, like last night, should weaken by the late evening hours. Overnight lows will drop to the 60s and 70s, as south winds stay breezy.
Another windy, hot and humid day is on tap for Sunday. Highs in most areas will reach the 90s, with some 80s in the northwest. Late day storms are again possible, with more severe weather too. Large hail, high winds and isolated tornadoes are possible.
Storms should move into the Wichita area Sunday night. Any leftover showers will push out by early Monday morning, leaving us with a decent Memorial Day. Less wind, humidity and heat with highs in the 80s.
Storm chances will return by late Tuesday night into Wednesday.
