Tracking a few storms tonight, cooler and less humid Wednesday

TONIGHT: Increasing clouds with showers and storms possible, especially north of I-70. Lows in the mid-70s.

TOMORROW: Isolated to scattered showers and storms with highs in the upper 80s. Mostly cloudy with light north winds.

EXTENDED: Showers and storms are expected to develop along a cold front draped to our northwest tonight, with some activity already starting to fill in across central Kansas. A few storms may be strong up north of Highway 24 with isolated gusty winds. Storms could move into our northern tier of counties by around 9:00 or 10:00 p.m., but activity will be somewhat scattered into the overnight hours as the cold front slowly sinks south. Winds will shift to the north behind the front, keeping much of Mid-Missouri in the upper 80s tomorrow afternoon with lingering clouds. Scattered showers and a few storms are possible along the boundary during the day, but severe weather isn't expected. Northerly winds stick around on Thursday, keeping humidity low and highs in the upper 80s to around 90. The heat ramps up again Friday into Saturday as high pressure in the mid-levels begins to build, forcing temperatures into the mid-upper 90s. The heat index gets to about 100-102 on Friday, and potentially up to 105 or 106 on Saturday. We'll be watching the temperature and dew point forecast closely for the start of the weekend. Another front moves in as the jet stream starts to flip Saturday night into Sunday, bringing a chance for rain, a few storms, and cooler temperatures by Sunday. Highs remain in the 80s for much of next week with a drier air mass overhead, so it will be comfortable for much of the week before it starts getting a little more humid around the 4th of July weekend again.
