What a beautiful sight!! Scattered showers and weak storms have been rolling through southcentral and western Kansas this afternoon. Get the latest radar view right here: http://www.ksn.com/weather/radar
The storms in western Kansas are expected to continue to grow and then move eastward into the night, reaching the Wichita Metro sometime after midnight.
Heavy rain will continue in central/eastern Kansas through tomorrow morning, with even a transition to snow in our northwestern counties.
Light rain showers will linger throughout the day on Monday across the state, before finally exiting to the east by Tuesday morning.
Our severe weather risk has been decreased for today, but we could certainly still see a severe storm or two through this evening, with up to 60 mph wind gusts and quarter size hail possible.
But thankfully our rain chances have only increased – roughly 0.50-1.00″ of rain is expected across the state tonight into tomorrow, with isolated higher amounts in our central/eastern counties.
It’s also possible to get a quick clip of snow in northwest Kansas/southwest Nebraska with this system, producing up to 1-3″. Some roads may be slick in the morning, and visibility may be reduced due to the strong winds, so be cautious!
Overall, we’re just finally getting some much-needed moisture! I’ll have the latest look at radar, tonight on KSN News at 10.
