The severe threat is gone but there could still be a sprinkle or light rain shower in Western and Eastern Kansas until the sun comes up. Flood Warnings are up for Elk and Cowley counties until at least 8 a.m. where some water has been reported over county roads. Early morning drivers will need to be cautious in these areas.
As expected, most of the heavier rains were confined to South Central and Southeastern Kansas. Winds have switched out of the north to give us a cool breeze and it’ll be a cooler day overall. Winds will still be gusty too. After a few days in the 70s and 80s we’ll drop into the 60s today with partly to mostly cloudy skies.
A brief wave of some energy will move into Kansas from the north during the afternoon and evening. This will spark a few rain showers and an isolated rumble but severe weather isn’t expected. Any rain that develops will be spotty.
We’ll dry out during the overnight as low temperatures turn chilly in the 30s and low 40s.
Friday will be a near-perfect spring day with partly cloudy skies and highs around 70. Saturday stays dry too as we warm up to near 80.
Shower and storm chances return Easter Sunday. From morning church service to afternoon activities, the forecast requires a close eye at this time because some storms could be strong. Unsettled skies linger into the work week with more rain and thunderstorm chances Monday and Tuesday.
