Wichita weather for Wednesday: Morning fog, then pleasant weather

Patchy fog may blot the morning commute Wednesday in the Wichita metropolitan area, forecasters say, before conditions clear and a pleasant day unfolds.

Visibility may drop to about a quarter of a mile at times in the region before 9 a.m., according to the National Weather Service. Winds will stir out of the northeast, dissipating the fog but staying in single digits.

Highs will peak in the mid-80s under sunny skies, forecasters say. Overnight lows will settle in the mid-60s under clear skies and Thursday will be much like Wednesday: mostly sunny with highs in the mid- to upper 80s.

South winds will occasionally touch double digits. Showers and thunderstorms move into the region Thursday night, however, and some of them could be severe.

The strongest storms should stay north of a line from Great Bend to Hutchinson to Chanute line, according to the National Weather Service. Those storms could produce strong winds and large hail.

Storms could linger into Friday morning in southern Kansas.
