While the rain moves out, our flooding concerns remain. Several rivers are either at flood stage or are in the process of approaching it in central and eastern Kansas.
Thankfully, the rain is tapering off as drier air is starting to work in tonight. There will still be a few spotty showers leftover, but nothing to the magnitude of what we had the last several days.
Colder air continues to track east. With moisture leftover behind this system, rain is switching to snow in the far northwestern part of our viewing area. Any accumulation will be light this evening as the wintry mix lifts to the north.
There are numerous frost advisories and freeze warnings in effect. If you live in one of these counties, make sure you bring in your plants and flowers. And please, don’t forget about your furry friends. Make sure they have a warm place to stay overnight.
Temperatures tonight will be in the 30s and 40s.
Tomorrow as clouds will be stubborn to break, highs will range from the 40s to the 60s. It will definitely feel like fall!
Showers will return by Friday and over the weekend. Colder air will start to spill south on Sunday, changing rain over to snow the closer you get to the Kansas/Colorado state line. We shouldn’t see those flakes in Wichita as temperatures will be too warm.
