Cool weather continues for Wichita

WICHITA - Unseasonably cool weather remains in the forecast for the Wichita area today.

Highs should only reach the low 80s in southern Kansas, forecasters say, with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. East-southeast winds will dance between single digits and the low teens.

More rain is possible tonight and overnight. The city’s official recording station next to Mid-Continent Airport received .73 of an inch of rain Tuesday, bringing the total for July to 3.47 inches. That’s .45 above average for the month.

More rain is possible on Thursday, when highs are expected to only be about 80.
