Fog is shrouding portions of the Wichita metropolitan area as Tuesday morning arrives, but forecasters say that should burn off by the time the workday gets under way.
Mostly sunny skies should hoist the temperature into the mid-70s, with light northerly winds dancing between the single digits and low teens and then shifting to the east. Thunderstorms are expected to fire up tonight as a front moves north into Kansas, forecasters say, but tornadoes are not expected.
“It looks like the main threat today is some large hail,” said Jerilyn Billings, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wichita.
Thunderstorms should become widespread and more numerous by 7 p.m., she said, with the strongest storms producing hail as large as hen’s eggs – or about two inches in diameter.
More thunderstorms are expected in the region Wednesday and Thursday.
