Two more days of storms before a much needed break

WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Two more days of storms in KAKEland before a much needed break from the soggy and stormy weather. Our weather pattern is breaking but not before a couple more rounds of storms that could be strong to severe with large hail, high wind and even a couple tornadoes possible.

Memorial Day will be dry for most of KAKEland with a mix of sun and clouds and plenty of wind out of the south. During the mid to late afternoon a few storms will be possible on Monday. These storms are expected to fire up along a dryline that will be positioned somewhere in the vicinity of US-283. At this time it appears that the best ingredients for a few storms that could be severe will be along the dry line and points to the north east in North Central. While we are not anticipating numerous storms, a few storms will be possible and they will form in an environment where they could turn severe. Large hail over 1” and wind gusts over 60 mph will be the most likely threats but a tornado or two can’t be ruled out. These storms will likely track northeast out of KAEKland by midnight.

A cold front on Tuesday is expected to spark another round of afternoon showers and storms across the eastern half of the State of Kansas. Once again and handful of these storms could turn severe with hail stones over 1”, wind gusts over 60mph and even a tornado or two possible. These storms will slide east and out of KAKEland during the overnight hours on Tuesday.

The aforementioned cold front will “sweep” KAKEland of the soggy and severe weather environment that has plagued KAKEland. Cooler and drier weather will invade for Wednesday and Thursday before a chance of unsettled weather returns late Friday through the weekend with highs climbing back into the 80s and even lower 90s.
