All is calm and quiet to start Tuesday ahead of our next round of unsettled weather. Expect a quick warm up with highs in the 90s. While the rest of us are baking, far northwest Kansas enjoys more tolerable temps in the 80s.
Storms spark through the day in western and northern Kansas. These storms are capable of packing punch with damaging winds, large hail, and flash flooding. A tornado or two isn’t completely out of the equation.
It does appear that most of the storms steer clear of the Metro until early Wednesday morning.
Due to the high concern of heavy rain, a Flash Flood Watch goes into effect for northwest Kansas through Wednesday morning. Heavy rainfall of a few inches is possible. Use caution if you have travel plans during this time period, do not try to drive through flooded roads.
A bulk of the rain appears to fall across the northern half of the state. While lesser amounts can be expected farther south. With the rain comes brief heat relief. Enjoy.
