FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) -

There was a narrow window of time for the strongest storms to blast through the area. 

South winds continued to feed humid air into the area, feeding the developing storms and holding temperatures into the 70s through sunset. 

The primary threat from the storms was large hail and strong gusty winds over 60 mph.

Once the storms moved east of the metro, they were expected to form a line, making damaging winds a bigger threat.

Temperatures will fall into the mid-50s once the storms pass and then will drop into the lower 40s by sunrise. 


Temperatures are expected to stay cool throughout the weekend.

Chances for rain and snow showers are possible on Saturday and freezing drizzle is possible on Sunday morning.
