Expect a cloudy, hot and humid Sunday

High temperatures each afternoon will generally be in the upper 80s to lower 90s, just depending on where and when it rains each day.

The coverage of storms will increase again by Monday afternoon, and this looks to be the trend through most of the week.

Areas of heavy rain with a few thunderstorms will continue into Saturday afternoon and into Saturday evening. Storms should remain across western Kansas and some may be strong to severe. The storm threat will be for hail and damaging winds.

Another round of storms will move across the state Sunday night through Monday morning bringing potential for heavy rain! Upper 80s and 90s return as we start the work (and school) week. Hopefully, we will have a clear sky to enjoy the solar eclipse, which will peak at 90% of totality in Montgomery (give or take a couple % if you live to the north or south in the viewing area).

Right now the hurricane center is giving the complex of storms an 80% of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours as it moves off to the W/NW towards the east coast of America and runs into a more favorable environment to strengthen.

Overnight into Sunday morning, we'll likely see another flare-up of showers and storms.

Sunday will be partly sunny with a 40 percent chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Highs will remain in the low 80s through early next week before climbing toward more seasonal norms by Wednesday and Thursday.
