We’re tracking a day of transition across Northeast Kansas. Breezy south winds will stick around all day, making a late October day feel…humid. Yes, you read that correctly. High temperatures will get close to 80° this afternoon, despite cloud cover increasing all day. For some context to this recent streak of warm weather, our average high temperature is just 66° this time of the year.
Showers and storms will develop tonight. However rainfall amounts do NOT look impressive. The time-frame we’re watching is 4:00 – 8:00am Wednesday. However, there is still a chance for a couple remnant showers to hangout until lunchtime tomorrow (likely closer to KC). Generally, expect 0.25 inches of rain. But, most of those showers will fall across the eastern-half of the area. Recent computer models are suggesting that spots west of US-75 will stay dry. This would include cities like Manhattan, Marysville and Washington. We’ll continue to track this trend over the next 12 hours. Stay tuned.
Skies will clear by Wednesday afternoon…and they’ll stay that way for the rest of the month. High temperatures will bounce back close to 80° on Friday, but more seasonal weather is expected over Halloween Weekend. Expect lows in the 40s and 50s throughout this stretch, with 60s during the daylight hours this weekend. Skies should be clear with temps in the lower 60s, just in time for TRICK-OR-TREATING next Monday!
