More clouds today ahead of our next rain chance

What we’re tracking:

  • Approaching showers & storms
  • Spring-like temps through most of this week
  • Cool down for next weekend

Cloudy skies will stick around tonight as our next chance of rain, and possibly even a few thunderstorms, moves in late tonight. Some of our southwestern counties could see the first raindrops before midnight tonight, but the bulk of the rain will move through during the overnight hours into the early morning hours tomorrow. Severe weather does not appear to be a concern for here in northeast Kansas, but don’t be surprised if you’re woken up by some thunder overnight. Even before the rain starts, the cloudy skies will help prevent our temperatures from sliding all too much as we’re expecting mild overnight lows in the 50s.

Once we get past the morning hours tomorrow, the chance of rain greatly diminishes. Our eastern areas could see a few showers lingering through the day, but again, the bulk of the rain will happen overnight into the early morning hours tomorrow. Otherwise, we’ll gradually start to dry out and clear out from west to east during the afternoon. Cloud cover will once again play a factor in our temperatures. Southerly winds early in the day will try to filter in warmer air before they start to veer out of the west and northwest later on. Anywhere from mid 60s to low 70s are feasible for tomorrow, but those who get stuck under the cloudy skies longer can expect to be on the lower side of high temperatures.

For Monday and Tuesday, sunshine returns, as well as warm temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 70s. Another rain chance moves in late Thursday through early Friday morning, but with overnight lows expected to bottom out in the 30s, some of our northern areas could see a few snowflakes fall. Looking ahead into next weekend though, a potent cold front on Friday will push us back into reality with our temperatures much more on the seasonal side with highs in the 40s.
