The sun rises over the Konza Praire Biological Station south of Manhattan. The 3,487-hectare preserve of native tallgrass prairie is a protected section of the Flint Hills of Kansas.

Last weekend featured a nasty thunderstorm where many houses and areas lost power and had to deal with heavy rainfall. 

This weekend will be a lot different. 

South-central Kansas will see a lot of clear blue skies, but it will remain hot. This will be a perfect weekend to enjoy, high school, college, Week 1 of the NFL, and enjoying the outdoors. 

Even though it will be hot this weekend, the weather isn't hazardous. 

The highs for Friday will range from 90-100 degrees, Saturday will range from 93-101 degrees, and Sunday will range from 91-97 degrees. Then, to start the weekday, Monday could have a high in the mid-90s.

The next time anything changes with the weather could be Tuesday when a little bit of moisture creeps back into the forecast. It will cool off on Tuesday and Wednesday, then there could be a chance of stray showers or thunderstorms.

However, after those two days, the temperatures could rise again.
