Wichita weather: Sunny and hot, then storms overnight

Wichita can expect another sunny, hot day as summer formally arrives today, forecasters say.

Showers may linger into Thursday, when highs will top out in the upper 80s. Winds will be calmer behind the front, shifting to the north and staying in single digits.
