Hermine essentially whiffed on Wichita, with the heaviest rain staying east of the city as the remnants of the tropical storm continued to deteriorate.
Just .18 of rain fell on Wichita, according to the National Weather Service, though portions of southeastern Kansas picked up as much as two inches. Drizzle is possible this morning before skies begin to clear in the metropolitan area.
But that clearing could lead to afternoon heating, which could in turn create the instability to generate thunderstorms, said weather service meteorologist Kevin Darmofal.
Highs today should reach the upper 70s to low 80s, with northeast winds touching double digits. More showers and thunderstorms are possible Friday – and some of them could be severe in central and southeast Kansas, Darmofal said.
