Bracing for Isaac

Wichita storm chaser and extreme weather photographer Jim Reed is documenting Isaac, the tropical storm expected to become a hurricane sometime today as it bears down on the Gulf Coast.

Reed is with Dag Kittlaus, co-creator of Siri, the voice on iPhones. They are in Gulfport, Miss., monitoring developments.

This first shot is workers boarding up the hotel Reed, Kittlaus and assistant Katelyn Pfeister are staying in.

The second shot shows the Gulfport shoreline in what could be dubbed the calm before the storm. This was taken Monday.

Wichita weather: Patchy fog early, then warm and sunny

The morning commute could be foggy in the Wichita area today, forecasters say, so drivers should stay alert.

Any fog should begin to clear by about 9 a.m., with calm conditions making way for light winds out of the southeast. Highs under clear skies are expected to reach the low 90s.

Skies should remain clear overnight, forecasters say, with lows bottoming out in the upper 60s. Winds will remain light out of the east.

Wednesday offers more sunshine and highs in the low to mid-90s. Winds will be calm again in the morning before stirring later in the day out of the east-southeast.
