Scattered showers or thunderstorms are possible by Saturday afternoon.

Most of our storms will likely decrease in intensity as we lose our heating this evening.

Today models are hinting at a small chance of storms early this morning in north-central Kansas with most keeping the area dry so will have to watch for any rain that may move in.

WHAT WE'RE TRACKINGShowers and thunderstorms rolled through the area between 9 am and 10 am producing gusty winds, and pockets of heavy rain.


A few strong storms this weekend could impact weekend plans around the ArkLaTex. Highs tomorrow only in the mid to upper 70s with skies becoming mostly sunny and winds WNW 7-12 miles per hour.

Sunshine will return for Sunday with a break from the heat and humidity. This nice weather should continue into Monday, before the next round of rain approaches Tuesday.

We'll keep in a chance tonight under partly cloudy skies. High: Low-mid 80s.

It appears that isolated afternoon storms will linger the rest of the week with lows in the mid-70s each morning and highs in the mid-90s. Stray showers developing, 20% rain chance. For the weekend, Saturday will be the hotter and more humid half with some pop-up showers and storms during the PM hours.
