Our weather is about to get more exciting with the arrival of a cold front into Kansas today. Here's what's coming with the front:
1) thunderstorms (some heavy rain, lightning, and wind)
2) cooler temperatures (especially across central and northern Kansas)
3) very low risk of severe storms
It will be hot for today (Thursday), but we could have a 20-30 degree spread in temperatures Friday afternoon. That's pretty amazing for a summer afternoon, but it does get more common as we get closer to the first day of fall (still well over a month away).
So what's next? I expect that at the beginning of next week, the heat's going to try and build back across the area. Our second week of August will be hot, and that should continue until Thursday or Friday (August 11/12) when another front may arrive with some rain chances.
