Weekend rain chance update

We've come to the end of a very hot week in Kansas. It wasn't a record setting week, but then again it doesn't have to be in order to be dangerous and flat out uncomfortable. 

If you've been following the forecast with us, you know we are expected to have some relief this weekend in terms of temperatures and the dry weather we've had. Here's the latest on the rain chances:

Saturday -
Slow moving front gets into the area and starts knocking temperatures down in western Kansas. Scattered storm chances will increase across northwest and north central Kansas during the evening hours. It's unlikely they will be severe, but watch for quick downpours and lightning. Our Future Track shows storms around 6-7 p.m. in the northwest and those should move east into the night.

Sunday -
As the front continues to push a little farther south, chances for storms will also be on the move. Although it doesn't look that promising, there is still a chance from Dodge City to Wichita for some rain and storms (with most storms not likely to be severe). 

All we can do is sit back and hope for some rain... even if it doesn't turn out to be much. We can be thankful for some heat relief if nothing else. Have a great weekend.
