Drier skies take hold before more rain moves back in


We’re tracking much more tranquil weather across Northeast Kansas today – coming off countless severe storms yesterday. High temperatures will rebound into the upper 70s again this afternoon. Expect the winds to be lighter today too – southeasterly only around 10mph. We’re tracking a ‘mix of sun and clouds’ painted across our skies today, with a chance for a few isolated showers by late afternoon. Otherwise, we’ll get a full 24 hours to dry out after our most recent soaker.

Speaking of – we’re still tracking MORE RAIN chances as early as tonight. In fact, showers and storms will develop out ahead and along a cold front overnight. Locally heavy rain is likely into the pre-dawn hours of Thursday. The actual cold front won’t pass through our backyards until late in the day tomorrow. But, as it does, it will bring another line of gusty storms along with it. Widespread severe weather is NOT expected tomorrow, though. Some spots will pick-up an additional inch of rain through Thursday evening. A couple of the most recent computer models are suggesting a few rain showers could even spill over into Friday morning – we’ll keep an eye on that trend over the next day or so.

Did we mention – tomorrow’s weather-maker is a cold front. So, how ‘cold’ is it going to get around these parts once it leaves? Well, how does 38° on Saturday morning sound? High temperatures will be glued close to 60° on Friday afternoon, with lows crashing into the 30s into the holiday weekend. Highs will have a hard time (again) reaching 70° on Saturday. However, we’re tracking a slow warm-up into early next week. Those same highs will gradually warm into the middle 70s by Monday. After Thursday’s rain scoots east, we’ll get ourselves into another little tranquil weather period. Our next chance for rain after tomorrow will wait until the middle of next week. Stay tuned.
