Meteorologist Paul Caiano's Morning Forecast

For Friday and the weekend, the slow approach of a front will increase storm chances each afternoon, particularly Friday and Saturday. A few storms may be severe with damaging winds and hail. Low temperatures will once again drop back to the 60s and 70s. Strong storms possible with a cold front moving through. Heavy rain could lead to more flooding as well and small hail is a possibility. High: 95. Sunday: Good Chance for Showers and Storms, Mainly in the Afternoon. We get hot Sunday with highs back to the upper 80s along with more sun and rising humidity. Lightning can strike up to 10-15 miles away from a storm. Winds NE around 5 miles per hour. Heat indices will snap into the 100 to 105 range daily between 11am and 7pm.

Scattered storms will be possible over northern Kansas through the evening, but during the overnight, most of it will be drying up.

Next week the heat builds back in with nearly a similar weather pattern to this week with mid-upper 90s for most of the week although some low 100s aren't too far out in central Kansas so will monitor the western communities again to rebound back in the triple digits as was the case this week.

There's a 30 to 40 percent chance of showers for Friday through next Tuesday.

SATURDAY: Expect lots of sunshine and warm, but pleasant temperatures in the lower 80s. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90. Highs will be in the lower 80s.
