On Ronelle’s Radar: Significant river flooding expected this week

Weather Blog

Showers and storms rolling through Kansas won’t let up much today, especially in Central Kansas. It’s going to be a soggy day and start to the work week.

An embedded stronger storm is possible with some gusty winds.

Flooding will be a much greater hazard. Flood Watches are in effect until Wednesday morning and Flood Warnings are in effect for area creeks and rivers. They’ll be running high through later this week, well after the rain stops.

Showers will be heavy at times, reducing visibility and causing water to be collected on roads in spots. We’ll all need to drive carefully and safely over the next 48 hours.

Temperatures warm slowly from the 60s into the low to middle 70s.

Locally heavy rain persists through the night and into Tuesday. Rain will gradually taper through the second half of the day but we won’t dry out completely until Wednesday.

Additional rainfall totals through early Wednesday morning will be as highs as 3″ to 5+”.

Late Tuesday, some wet snowflakes could mix into any leftover showers in extreme Northwestern Kansas.

There will be a couple more chances of this happening this week. Temperatures the rest of the week will generally be on the cool side in the 60s. Even though we’ll get a couple of days to dry out we’ll have to watch out for more rain/t-storm chances on Friday and Saturday.
