Severe threat today - Nice Friday in store

Thursday is here and our next round of severe weather is shaping up for parts of Kansas. Much of the state could be looking at some strong to severe storms heading through the evening hours. Wind gusts of 70 mph will be possible with some locally heavy rainfall and hail. I don't think the storms will go all night long. In fact, but midnight or 1 a.m. Friday, most of them will be out of the area. 

Here is a look at what's on our Future Track heading into the evening. Storms will start in the northwest around 5/6. 

By 9 or 10 p.m. the storms should be coming across south central Kansas. 

AND... maybe the best news of all is that in the wake of the storms this evening will come some cooler weather for tomorrow. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s for Friday afternoon. 

Next week looks hotter for Kansas. Highs will be pushing the 100 degree mark AGAIN, but there are signs on the models that we will see a cold front at the end of the week and another chance for some rain coming Friday. So even if we end up with a mini heat wave next week, it shouldn't last for more than 5 days or so.

On the Road!
Millie and I will be in Douglass today for our Hometown Heroes segment. Then we head to Dodge City for Friday where we will be judges in the kids BBQ competition as part of Dodge City Days. We will be busy, but just thrilled that it won't be a major heat wave.
