We got a short break from the rain and thunder late yesterday evening but wet weather gradually made a return during the overnight. A Flood Watch is now in effect and it’ll continue through this evening. This next round will move through during the morning hours.
An additional .50″ to 1″ of rain is possible. Nothing severe is expected but as showers and storms lift to our north and east there could be a marginally severe storm in Northern Kansas during the late morning and early afternoon. There will mainly be a wind and hail threat but the tornado threat is not zero.
Winds are stronger, gusting up to 30+ mph early this morning. They’ll turn even stronger in the afternoon, possibly gusting up to 60+ mph. A High Wind Warning will be in effect through Thursday.
Conditions trend drier in the afternoon as the dry part of the storm system lifts over Kansas. Rain will still be wrapped into Western Kansas during this time. This is also when strong south winds will drive high temperatures into the 60s.
By early evening colder air on the back side of the storm system will start to filter into Northwestern Kansas, changing rain to snow. This trend continues through the night while impacting our Northernmost counties through Thursday morning.
A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect where snow showers could total 1″ to 3″. Winds will still be strong too so blowing snow could reduce visibility.
Rain/snow showers and flurries are possible in Southwestern and Central Kansas between tonight and tomorrow. Wet and wintry weather will gradually taper through the day as a strong area of low pressure tracks out of the region.
Highs will be cooler in the 40s and 30s. Sunshine and dry conditions move back in Friday with highs in the 40s and then warming into the 50s and 60s over the weekend. Unsettled skies look to make a return Monday night and Tuesday with a chance of rain but there isn’t anything too significant on the horizon.
