Storms will gradually diminish once we reach sunset Sunday evening.
A chance of rain is not a certainty; these storms will be most widespread south of US 72 on Saturday, and most of us get away with no rain at all on Sunday.
We start off with mostly cloudy skies across the Mid-South, with temps warming up to 84°; heat index: 87°. The heavier and more extensive rain areas will move east tomorrow night with some rain lingering overnight. Drying out by Friday into next weekend.
Rain chances remain high Tuesday but a ridge of high pressure building strength over North America and the upper air flow will shift and frontal boundaries will remain well north of the area. Highs will be in the low 90s.
Northeast wind at 5-10mph.
Monday: Morning clouds, then partly cloudy, warm and humid.
The coverage of storms will increase again by Monday afternoon, and this looks to be the trend through most of the week.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible Saturday afternoon in the Wichita area, forecasters say, though much better chances of rain will be west of I-135.
Sat: High: 88 Low: 68 Mostly sunny.
