What We’re Tracking:
- Rain returns to the area today
- Mainly dry by the mid-afternoon
- More rain chances to come, through the holiday weekend
You’ll feel that humidity as you head out and about across Northeast Kansas today. And, humidity isn’t the only thing on the rise in the weather department. Raindrops have return to the area, too. Scattered showers and storms will stay mainly north/east today and start to fizzle out by the afternoon hours. However, the mere sighting of rain today is just a tease of what’s to come.
Unfortunately, rain chances stay in the forecast each and every day of the next seven. Yes, including for a bunch of the upcoming holiday weekend. However, that doesn’t mean it will be raining everywhere, all the time. In fact, I don’t expect any wash-outs for The Fourth. At least that’s not what it’s looking like right now.
The best chances for rain over the next seven days look to be Thursday evening/night, Sunday and Tuesday. Arguably the most important day of the extended forecast is Saturday, July 4th. At this point in time, scattered showers or a rumble of thunder look likely during the morning hours. Most, if not all, of the rain will quickly sag south by the afternoon and won’t fully return until Sunday. The holiday is still 3+ days away, but we now have a better picture of what that day will look like. And, as of now we should be mainly dry for afternoon parades and evening fireworks displays. If something immediate changes, you can count on us having your back. We’re tracking every last raindrop across the area over the next week. You’re already in the right place for the latest updated forecast. Stay tuned.
Have a great day!
