Day of Transition: Scattered showers and breezy south winds

We’re tracking a transitional day across Northeast Kansas complete with scattered rain chances and breezy south winds. Severe weather is NOT in the forecast. Rather, we’re tracking areas of light/moderate rain throughout the daylight hours. Some spots in our neck of the woods will even stay dry for extended periods of time. Despite south winds gusting over 25mph, temperatures will be stuck in the 60s almost all day. Highs MIGHT nudge into the lower 70s by this afternoon – depending on how much sunshine we squeak out. It will be a constant battle between the sun and clouds all day.

Generally, rain chances will DECREASE as today unfolds. In fact, skies will quickly clear by tonight. Expect wall-to-wall sunshine with warm and breezy weather on tap tomorrow. Persistent south winds remain on Tuesday out ahead of yet another cold front overnight into Wednesday. We’re already tracking more widespread rain for the the middle of the week. At this point, locally heavy rain could move into our western counties as early as Tuesday evening. However, most of the rain will fall during the early morning hours of Wednesday. We’ll continue to pinpoint the mid-week rain chances over the next day or so.

Temperatures will quickly fall behind the cold front, though. We’re tracking lows plummeting back into the 30s by Thursday morning. High temperatures will be lucky to break 60° on Thursday afternoon – even with ‘mostly sunny’ skies. Don’t worry – if you prefer warmer fall weather…that’s in the forecast too. We’re tracking a gradual warm-up into the weekend; high temperatures will approach 80° by Saturday. And you guessed it – another prolonged stretch of sun-filled skies upcoming.
