Moderate to heavy rainfall is expected through the night tonight as our next cold front will bring in another round of rain overnight. An additional 1 to 2 inches of rain could fall in spots overnight. Even when dry time gets mixed in, mainly cloudy skies will help keep low temperatures around 70 degrees.

The rain will push off to the south during the early morning hours tomorrow. Some southern areas may wake up to some lingering showers and storms, but dry weather across all of Northeast Kansas is expected by mid-morning tomorrow. Otherwise, tomorrow will be a day of transition as we get further and further behind that cold front as it sinks south. Skies will gradually clear as the day progresses, and northerly winds will return by the afternoon at 10 to 15 mph. Those northerly winds will help kick out any remaining humid air, as well.

Drier weather sticks around for midweek before our next chance of rain rolls in leading into the weekend. Otherwise, it’ll be a cooler week with temperatures in the 80s for the next several days.
