Heat wave scorching the Southeast this Memorial Day weekend


The coming storm is expected to produce isolated thunderstorms, infrequent lightning, some small hail, 45 miles per hour winds and possibly funnel clouds.

Clouds will break on Memorial day with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies across Kansas.

Friday night - Mostly clear. Moderate temperatures and sunny skies are on tap for all three days. The heat and humidity we can deal with, it's the threat of some late-afternoon-into-evening storms that brings the trouble today. Highs by the afternoon are expected to reach into the mid to upper 80s. A cold front will reside just south of the Michigan / Indiana border on Sunday keeping scattered showers hovering right around the border and for areas southward. Clouds will increase in the afternoon, with a chance for thunderstorms after 2 p.m. Highs will be in the low to mid 70s.
