T.J.’s Forecast: Wonderful St. Patrick’s Day weather-wise, more unsettled by Tuesday

Weather Blog

We’re closing out the weekend on a great note across Kansas with lots of sunshine and more seasonably mild temps. Many of us have surged up into the 50s and 60s quiet conditions being seen throughout the Plains.

High pressure dominates through the night but will begin to move eastward allowing for more clouds to stream in out ahead of our next disturbance. We’ll go for a mix of clouds and sun tomorrow with mainly cloudy skies by dark.

A few sprinkles are possible, especially in Western Kansas by Monday night but the best chances arrive on Tuesday. As it stands now, the rain is looking a little heavier in our northcentral neighborhoods but the precipitation won’t be terribly heavy but we could see some pockets of moderate rain. Periods of rain will be seen here in Wichita with more isolated to scattered activity out west. By late Tuesday night, this system is departing with a lingering sprinkle possible early Wednesday.

Partly cloudy skies will prevail Wednesday and Thursday out ahead of a more impressive system that looks to move in by late in the week. Temperatures will be climbing back above average out ahead of this moisture on Thursday and Friday with highs in the 60s for many of us. Rain will continue to develop Thursday night into Friday with a little more energy pushing up into this low-pressure center by the weekend. This looks to bring the potential for some thunderstorms. It’ll be something we’ll be keeping an eye on through the week for sure because we could have a low-end severe threat. The winds will be picking up with this storm as well but nothing like what we saw last week.

Have a great night!

T.J.
