2:50PM It’s quite warm out there with Wichita at 89 degrees. Overall though, not a bad start to the Holiday Weekend.  KSN Storm Tracker 3 Radar is quiet for now, and most of us will get through the day dry. However, some much needed rain is in the forecast which could affect part of the weekend.

Kansas Temperatures

10:33AM Conditions across the state are relatively quiet this Saturday morning… which is great news considering it’s a holiday weekend! We can all expect it to stay that way until tomorrow! So here’s a breakdown of what we’re looking at — Sunday holds for very hot temperatures, ranging in the middle and upper 90s across the state. We should be able to make it through a good portion of the day on a dry note, although a few storms could fire up in western Kansas late in the afternoon as a strong storm system approaches. This leads us to the severe weather risk across the region, right now much of Kansas is in an Elevated Risk for severe storms. There’s a better chance for severe storms over central Kansas as early as late afternoon but will be more likely Sunday evening. Anyone with outdoor plans this holiday weekend will need to stay up date with the forecast and have a plan B in case storms enter your area.

8:31AM The first part of our holiday weekend is looking pretty good, Sunday could be a different story. We are under an elevated risk for severe weather. The greatest chance of strong storms for the KSN viewing area seems to be late in the afternoon on into Sunday night. So much of Sunday could be pretty good–but you will need to have a way to keep in touch even out and enjoying holiday fun.  Here’s a great way–follow our Twitter severe weather feed for your part of Kansas:

7:08AM Relief from the heat ends today but it’s not going to be a day with temperatures in the triple digits. Really, perfect pool and lake weather to kick off the holiday weekend.

6:18AM WOW! What a breathtaking view! We are still looking at some areas of fog as you can see on the metro camera, there’s a little bit of a haze out in the distance.

6:01AM Mainly dry weather is expected for a change across the area today. Great pool and lake weather as temperatures climb into the lower 90s this afternoon!

5:25AM Becoming sunny and hotter this afternoon. We are still keeping a close eye on the latest data for storms on Sunday. Right now the current thinking is that strong to severe storms will be possible during the late afternoon and evening hours in Kansas. Otherwise expect hot and dry conditions.
