What we’re tracking:
- Tranquil end to the first day of spring
- Cooler, but still mild temperatures
- Numerous rain chances ahead
Aside from some passing clouds tonight, quiet conditions will be around for tonight. Overnight lows will drop down into the upper 40s to low 50s.
Starting tomorrow, temperatures return to cooler, albeit more seasonal levels, with mainly 50s and 60s for the next week. Those milder temperatures go along with numerous rain chances and mainly cloudy skies.
A couple isolated showers can’t be entirely ruled out for tomorrow, but that low chance looks to be focused on areas to the south of the turnpike and more so towards southeast Kansas. Wednesday morning could actually see scattered areas of a rain/snow mix for places to the north of I-70 as temperatures will be in the 30s. However, any wet snowflakes or sleet that does manage to make it to the ground won’t stick as the surface will still be too warm. Otherwise, a few isolated rain showers can’t be ruled out for Wednesday either, but most will remain dry under mostly cloudy conditions.
A few pop up thunderstorms are possible for Wednesday night into Thursday, with a better chance for thunderstorm development on Friday. Friday will be the best chance of being a ‘soaker’ with showers and storms likely for all of northeast Kansas. It’s still uncertain how strong these thunderstorms could be, but we’ll keep you updated on this forecast!
