  • Thursday forecast: One more day of severe weather, quiet conditions tomorrow

Wichita and most of Kansas escaped the worst of nature's wrath on Wednesday, with storms delivering welcome rain but only scattered small hail and a couple of weak tornadoes. Torrential rain, damaging winds and large hail also are possible. Nine tornadoes were reported from Texas to Iowa Wednesday with some straight-line wind gusts exceeding 100 miles per hour.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers closed parts of the H.E. Bailey Turnpike due to strong winds and Oklahoma Turnpike Authority employees near Newcastle evacuated to a tornado shelter until the storms passed. And, with little severe weather so far in 2018, forecasters are concerned people may not be focused on the risks the way they are after a couple rounds of storms.

The next chance of showers and thunderstorms will come Tuesday night into Wednesday as an upper-level shortwave sweeps across the plains.

There is a 60% chance of showers and storms along and south of I-80 between 5-10pm tonight.

More record heat is expected from D.C.to NY on Thursday.With the third day of 90s in the Northeast possible on Friday, it could be the first heat wave of the year.

"Thunderstorms may develop very late tomorrow afternoon, and more likely during the evening and then continue to increase into the overnight hours". Almost 3 inches of rain fell in Minco as of 9 p.m. Wednesday. Partly cloudy, with a low around 56.

Thu: High: 78 Low: 57 Becoming mostly sunny, breezy.

Sunday, the high will be near 78 with partly sunny skies, the weather service said.
