***FLASH FLOOD WATCH FROM SATURDAY 7:00 PM UNTIL MONDAY AT NOON for Anderson, Atchison, Brown, Coffey, Doniphan, Douglas, Jackson, Jefferson, Lyon, Morris, Osage, Shawnee & Wabaunsee counties.
What We’re Tracking:
- Cloudy with only a few light showers Friday night
- Several rounds of storms likely over Memorial Day Weekend
- Flooding concerns for the southeastern 2/3 of the area.
The chance for scattered showers and storms looks fairly high over the course of the weekend, but there will be periods of dry weather, too. Scattered light to moderate showers early Saturday, then showers and storms possible late Saturday into Saturday night. During this time is when the heaviest rain is most likely. Much of the southeastern 2/3 of the area will pick up 1-3″ of rainfall and have been placed under a Flash Flood Watch from Saturday at 7pm until Monday at noon.
Scattered storms are looking likely for Sunday, but the threat of off and on storms will be with us for much of next week as highs climb back into the lower 80s. By Monday, the storms will become isolated and more hit-or-miss in nature as we transition into a period of warmer, more humid conditions for the next week.
