What We’re Tracking:
- More widespread rain moves in this aftrenoon/evening
- Storm threat lingers over the next six days
- Warm, humid into Memorial Day Weekend
We’re tracking some drier skies to start the day. However, showers and storms will rumble back into Northeast Kansas this afternoon and last through much of the early evening hours. Compared to the wild weather we have seen over the last two days, the severe weather threat is toned down today. Heavy rain remains the primary threat with flooding concerns persisting into the holiday weekend.
As we head into Memorial Day Weekend, daytime temperatures will be in the 70s for the most part. Storm chances will linger into the middle of next week, but we’ll see a lot more rain-free time upcoming. In fact, you can expect prolonged periods of dry weather over the long weekend with hours of sun-filled weather. Keep checking back here for immediate updates to the forecast, though. Locally heavy rain and strong/severe storms stick around this weekend, too.
We’re tracking a respite from all of this rain…there’s light at the end of the tunnel! Rain chances will be conspicuously absent from the forecast as early as next Thursday. In fact, long-range models suggest we trade rain chance in for sunshine and dry weather heading into NEXT weekend. Keep in mind, we’re talking about day-to-day weather that’s 8+ days away – a lot can change between now and then. However, know that the eventual trend is for some drier weather, as we ultimately shake these daily storm chances…we’ll just have to wait it out for the better part of the next week. Stay tuned.
Have a safe and reflective holiday weekend!
