We’re still tracking scattered showers and a few storms today. Widespread severe weather is NOT likely. The light rain falling across Northeast Kansas this morning will continue to drift slowly off to the south and east, as we’re left with mostly cloudy and rain-free skies for a large chunk of today. This weather-maker’s trailing cold front will swing through this evening and spark the final chance of showers and storms. We are tracking every single raindrop for you, so you can plan the end of your week and your upcoming weekend.
The cloud cover will be rather stubborn, and stick around for a bunch of Saturday. A few break in the clouds will allow for some sunshine early this weekend – we’ll call it ‘partly sunny’ for Saturday, with drying skies. The remnant rains will continue to push south and east by Saturday morning, as winds shift to become more northwesterly – ushering some seasonably cool weather back into the area. In fact, we’re tracking high temperatures in the upper 70s and lower 80s on Saturday. Keep in mind, our seasonal average high for this time of the year is 87°.
Have a great day!
