10:24PM There are showers and storms currently moving east towards Southwest Kansas and the Oklahoma Panhandle…these showers shouldn’t make it too far east into Kansas, but may affect some of our far Western Counties. Storm Tracker 3 Radar here.

8:30PM Temperatures are still warm.  Cool spot currently is McCook at 73 degrees. Wichita is just 10 degrees warmer – still at 83. It’s a very pleasant evening out there as we wrap up the weekend.

5:54PM There are still a few small showers in Southwest Nebraska and Northwest Kansas. A little shower and storm activity is possible through this evening, but most will stay dry tonight.

4:12PM We have a few clouds in Wichita but overall, still nice. Now up to 83 degrees with a breeze NW at 8mph. There are still a few small showers in Northwest Kansas and Southwest Nebraska. Get radar anytime here.

Kansas Temperatures

10:10AM Clouds will slowly break for some afternoon sunshine. Winds will switch to the north, which will usher in drier air.  So, by Monday, expect highs in the low 80s and plenty of sunshine.

9:05AM Showers and a few thunderstorms will remain possible across the area today…although the chances will steadily decrease into the evening.

8:04AM Temperatures are mild this morning in the 60s across the state with clouds overhead in central Kansas. As the weekend wraps up, so will the rain chances although a shower or storm will be possible this afternoon once again in central Kansas. Not as widespread or severe, just a hit and miss shower or storm.

7:00AM Damp to start off our Sunday with clouds lingering overhead in central Kansas. Temperatures this afternoon won’t be as hot in the 80s. There is a chance of thunderstorms again late this afternoon and into the evening, most of us will stay dry.

5:24AM A leading line of strong thunderstorms and area of trailing rain showers will continue to roll east across much of the area through dawn. While the severe weather risk has diminished, a few strong storms with gusty winds to 50 mph can be expected along with locally heavy rainfall over 1 inch, mainly east of the Kansas turnpike.

4:47AM The risk of severe weather remains low for the rest of the night. Showers and storms are now in eastern Kansas. We are tracking a line along the Kansas and Oklahoma state line, these are not expected to become severe.

4:04AM Non-severe storms are pushing into eastern Kansas, we have a few leftover showers now in Wichita.

2:30AM Localized flooding will be a main concern as storm continue to track east across central Kansas.

1:02AM Law enforcement just reported a semi-trailer blown over on highway 400, 2 miles west of Dodge City…this happened a few minutes before 11PM CDT Saturday.

12:54AM Goodland received 0.73″ of rain Saturday evening, while Dodge City has seen 0.76″ so far tonight.

12:48AM Heavy rain and gusty winds continue with storms moving east across Kansas. This line isn’t to Sedgwick Co. yet, but it’s getting close. Get radar here.

12:26AM Most of the Severe T-Storm Watch has been cancelled or allowed to expire. There is still a watch for parts of Central Kansas in effect until 2AM CDT.
