Wichita weather: A break from the rain

Sunshine and cool temperatures for late July will offer Wichita and the surrounding area a respite from the storms that have rocked the region the past couple of days, forecasters say.

Highs will top out in the upper 80s, with light northerly winds occasionally nudging the teens.

Lows tonight will be in the upper 60s, with winds shifting to the east but staying light.

Thursday brings a good chance of showers and thunderstorms late in the day, forecasters say. Highs will again be in the upper 80s under mostly sunny skies. Winds will shift again, back to the south, and strengthen into the teens.

Storms Thursday night could be severe, the National Weather Service warns, with downburst winds and heavy rain possible from storms moving east-southeast – much as they did Tuesday night.
