Weather Channel ranks Wichita #9 on ‘tornado cities’

This is “Tornado Week” on The Weather Channel. Check the network’s listings for programming about tornadoes. The website features a story today about the “Top 10 Tornado Cities.”

Wichita is the only Kansas city on the list. The irony of that is how often I’ve been told over the years that Wichita is “immune” from tornadoes.

As if April 14, 2012, or April 26, 1991, weren’t enough to shatter that myth.

Wichita weather: Sunny, breezy and warm

Now this is more like it.

The warm, sunny weather that embraced Wichita’s weekend will continue for a few more days, forecasters say, with sunny skies and highs in the 80s Monday and Tuesday.

South winds will strengthen as Monday stretches out, from the single digits early to the upper teens by mid-afternoon. Gusts could approach 30 miles an hour.

Overnight lows tonight will only drop to the low 60s, with the south winds easing only a little. Gusts on Tuesday could approach 35 miles an hour, forecasters say.

Showers re-enter the forecast Tuesday night and Wednesday in the Wichita area.
