Wichita weather: Scattered showers possible on a windy day

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible through Wednesday morning in the Wichita area — and they could return in the evening as well, forecasters say.

Highs should reach the mid-90s in the Wichita area, with south winds in the 20s. Gusts could reach the mid-30s, forecasters say.

Better chances for strong thunderstorms will be northwest of Wichita, stretching all the way past I-70.

Thursday looks to be sunny during the day, with showers and thunderstorms likely. The storms should fire up early in the afternoon in central Kansas, forecasters say, and move into the Wichita area later in the evening.

Large hail, damaging winds and heavy rain are the primary threats. AccuWeather is projecting that Wichita could see an inch of rain from the storms.

Monitor later forecasts for updated information.
