What We’re Tracking:
- Stronger winds tomorrow
- Next round of rain
- Dry & cooler weather ahead
Winds will begin to relax overnight with lows in the 40s. However, they’ll pick right back up by mid-morning tomorrow. Sustained southerly winds will range from 15 to 25 mph, with possible gusts as high as 45 mph at times. Those winds will once again help usher in some mild air, with high temperatures expected to be right around the 60° mark.
Not only will it be windy tomorrow, but fairly rainy, as well. The first rain drops could begin to fall by late morning tomorrow for our western counties before spreading east. Better chances for rain will occur through the afternoon into the evening for all of northeast Kansas. It will be mainly showers, but a few thunderstorms can’t be ruled out either. However, severe weather is extremely unlikely. The rain chances will dwindle through the night, with a few lingering spotty showers for the start of Monday.
We’ll clear out and dry out starting on Monday, and those dry conditions will last through the next several days. Highs on Monday will be in the upper 50s as winds shift to the west, but that will begin to bring in cooler air as highs cool into the 40s for most of next week.
