Temperatures could climb into the upper 90s for the first time in more than a month in the Wichita area on Monday, forecasters say, before a cold front pushes through the area and brings with it the chance for strong evening thunderstorms.

South winds will be in the teens and gust to nearly 25 miles an hour under mostly sunny skies. The strongest thunderstorms could bring hail as large as 2 inches in diameter and winds of up to 70 miles an hour, according to the National Weather Service.

The front is expected to stall near the Kansas-Oklahoma border, meaning portions of southern Kansas could receive substantial rainfall. That, in turn, could prompt flooding in already saturated areas.

Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s in Wichita, forecasters say, with Tuesday offering more chances for rain. Highs on the back side of the cold front will only be in the low 80s.

A dry spell arrives Wednesday, with highs again in the low 80s.
