Wichita weather: More showers and thunderstorms

Showers and thunderstorms are likely again in the Wichita area on Monday.

Some of those storms could be strong, according to the National Weather Service. The primary threats will be hail as large as golf balls and winds of up to 65 miles an hour.

“A tornado or two can not be ruled out,” a hazardous weather outlook issued by the weather service states.

The greatest risk for severe weather appears to be along and east of the Kansas Turnpike.

Highs today will be in the low 80s, forecasters say, with south winds in the upper 20s. Gusts will approach 30 miles an hour.

Lows tonight will fall to the upper 50s. Tuesday should offer a break in the rainy weather, forecasters say, with sunshine and highs in the mid-80s. Winds will be light and variable.

Slight chances for showers and thunderstorms return Tuesday night and Wednesday.
