However, the large majority of Green Country will be staying dry today, and the next several days for that matter.

We begin the new work week with more humidity and a spotty shower or thunderstorm during the afternoon and evening. Keep in mind to drink plenty of water and use your best judgement by listening to your body on when you need to take breaks from being outside. Another day of enhanced rain chances is ahead for Monday. Overnight lows will remain in the mid 70s.

Tonight mostly clear with a small chance of an isolated shower/storm in north-central Kansas otherwise dry with lows in the low 70s with southeast winds around 5 miles per hour.

More heat is going to build in later this week as highs will soar into the upper 90s by Friday. Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 102. But Sunday could be rather unsettled with the chance for some heavier rain and thunderstorms as a storm system moves through the state. Lows will cool to 65-69 by Tuesday morning with partly cloudy skies to start the day.

Tonight: A mild and muggy night tonight with temperatures in the low and mid 70s with light easterly winds.

Thursday night, it will be mostly clear, with a low of 78, according to the weather service.
