Isolated storms are still possible in the Wichita area Wednesday morning as the region tries to dry out from a series of storms Tuesday.

A flood warning remains in effect until 10 a.m. Wednesday for Sedgwick and western Sumner counties, following a night of storms that dumped 3 or more inches of rain in parts of the metropolitan area.

Highs on Wednesday should reach the upper 60s as skies gradually clear, forecasters say. Winds will be light and variable early before settling out of the west-northwest and gusting above 20 miles an hour at times.

After overnight lows in the upper 40s, Thursday should be most sunny with highs in the low 70s. Northerly winds should stay in the single digits.

Showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast Thursday night and will persist into the weekend, forecasters say. Some of the storms could be strong and severe, carrying the potential for heavy rain.
