Sunny and warm for Wichita today, but storms possible tonight

A second straight warm, sunny day awaits Wichita today, forecasters say, but strong storms could strike late tonight.

Highs should reach the mid-80s, with southerly breezes in the teens today. Thunderstorms are possible this afternoon, forecasters say, but should be much more numerous throughout the region after midnight.

The National Weather Service reports the storms could produce hail the size of golf balls and winds of at least 60 miles an hour. More showers are possible Friday morning, but the weekend should be dry - good news for the start of the Wichita River Festival.
