*AREAL FLOOD WARNING IN EFFECT FOR NUMEROUS COUNTIES THROUGH 9:30AM
We’re tracking significant flooding across Northeast Kansas today. Anywhere from 2-5″+ of rain fell across these parts on Tuesday evening – flash flooding was the primary concern from the severe weather outbreak. However, we are tracking drier weather starting today. It will take some time for the skies to clear, but peeks of sunshine are likely before the sun sets. Southwest winds will gust over 25mph today – acting as an extra drying mechanism.
We’re still tracking some remnant rain showers today – mainly across N. Central Kansas (our NW counties). Places like Belleville, Concordia, Clay Center and Washington could see some more light/moderate rain throughout the day. Meanwhile, the rest of Northeast Kansas will remain dry. Mostly sunny skies will make their valiant return tomorrow, but daytime temperatures will stay ‘seasonably cool.’ In fact, we’re tracking high temperatures in the 60s for the rest of the week.
The upcoming ‘rain-free’ time will be fairly brief, as showers and storms move back in as early as Friday evening. This weekend will NOT be a ‘wash-out’ – but it will be wet. Expect numerous passing showers and storms this weekend. At this point, sever weather does NOT seem likely. Regardless, we’ll be tracking those weekend rain chances for you as Friday approaches. You’re already in the right place for the latest local weather information. Stay tuned.
Have a great day!
