Looking like a carbon copy of yesterday with less wind. Warming trend takes off tomorrow, increasing fire danger.
As advertised, a ripple of precipitation is working across southwest Kansas early this morning. Given the little amount of moisture, at most we’re looking a few sprinkles or raindrops, perhaps a random flake in the mix. Certainly not enough to improve the ongoing drought.
Clouds to scoot on out through the day with light winds to stick around. Comfortable highs in the 50s. Enjoy the cool calmness now because the wind cranks up tomorrow.
Windy warmth leads to a concern about fire danger. Wednesday and Thursday are looking like a significant day for fire weather. Strong southwest winds and low humidity will aid in critical fire weather. Outdoor burning should be avoided during this time period.
The warmest day of the week lands on Thursday. Records are in jeopardy across western Kansas ahead of our next storm system. Temperatures soar into the 80s, making it feel more like May.
Records are a bit of a stretch in the Metro but will continue to monitor.
Cooling off for the weekend with minor shower and storm chances. Join me on Kansas Today from 4:30-7 a.m. and again on KSN News at Noon for the latest! – Laura Bannon
