TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT)- We are dealing with some clouds and some light rain with temperatures in the lower 60s this Monday morning in Northeast Kansas.

This is just the first of possible showers and thunderstorm chances heading into the new workweek. We have a decent chance of scattered showers and storms for Monday evening as a cold front will be passing through allowing for high temperatures to once again only climb into the upper 70s with calm winds. Dew points will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s so we will still be on the dry, less humid side for at least a couple of more days. The good news is that no severe weather is expected.

We get a chance to dry out a bit on Tuesday with mostly sunny skies before our next chances roll back in late Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Temperatures will also slowly rebound back up to to seasonal standards as we go into the middle part of the week. Our average high temperature for late June is 87 degrees. By Wednesday and Thursday, we’re expecting temps to be flirting with the upper 80s to near 90 degrees, along with the muggy, high humidity levels.

Models are showing that our best chances for rain and thunderstorms will be late Wednesday through early Friday as our next major storm system pushes through. As of right now, the best chance for us to see some stronger to possible severe storms will be on Wednesday night through Thursday with a wind and hail threat. We could also see some heavy rainfall from this event as well. We are still a couple of days from this event so anything can change. This is something we’ll continue to track and watch.

We cool down a bit back to the middle 80s on Friday before going back up to near 90 next weekend with a mix of sun and clouds.

Stay tuned!
