Wichita weather: Storms possible east of the Kansas Turnpike

Saturday could prove stormy for areas along and east of the Kansas Turnpike, forecasters say.

That could mean large hail and strong winds for folks at El Dorado Lake or other spots in southeast Kansas. Wichita may escape the severe weather, however. There’s only a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms for the city.

Highs are expected to reach the mid-80s, with light southerly winds on a mostly cloudy day.

Pleasant weather is expected the rest of the holiday weekend, with highs in the low 80s. Sunday should offer a mix of sunshine and clouds, forecasters say, with Monday offering lots of sunshine.

Tuesday will also be sunny, with highs in the low 80s.
