With brilliant blue skies, we were stuck with the chill again today. Temperatures hovered in the 50s across the state.
Overnight, we’ll have another cold one with temps dropping below freezing.
Much stronger southwesterly winds will kick up on Wednesday, which is also the day that the NCAA Tournament starts here in Wichita.
High temperatures will soar across Kansas. The gusty nature of the winds combined with the dry vegetation means there is a high fire risk. So, please refrain from doing any burning in the meantime.
There are a couple of storm systems on the way. However, we’re not in the best position to pick up rain from them as dry air will eat away at the moisture.
Western Kansas may see a little Thursday night and into Friday morning.
I see northeastern Kansas and points east toward the Kansas City Metro seeing some Friday morning and over the weekend.
Overall, our rain chances, while fairly light, are better in northern Kansas than they are for the southern half of the state with these next 2 events.
Join me tonight on KSN News as I track our springtime warm up with our chances for rain. I’ll let you know if and when you may pick up a shower or two. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
