Wichita weather: Windy, with a few strong storms possible

A windy Monday is on tap for south central Kansas, forecasters say, and a few strong storms are possible later this afternoon and evening.

A wind advisory is in effect until 7 p.m. in the Wichita area. Winds are expected to blow steadily at more than 30 miles an hour and gusts could reach 45 mph, officials say.

Highs under partly cloudy skies today could flirt with the century mark. Storms are expected to fire up after 2 p.m., forecasters say, with areas along and east of I-135 the most likely to see severe weather.

Large hail, winds of at least 65 miles an hour and a few tornadoes are possible with these storms, forecasters say.

Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s, and more thunderstorms are possible in the Wichita area on Tuesday.
