What We’re Tracking:
- Some strong storms Wednesday into Thursday
- Less humid Friday into the weekend
- Sunny with near normal temps ahead
Yesterday we caught a nice break. Morning rain and thicker clouds helped keep temps in the low to mid 80s. Makes me crave late September. Many have already are tired of hot, steamy days.
We are trending toward something more seasonable in the coming days with 90-95 degree highs. Despite the high humidity, the periodic shower is greatly appreciated as long as severe weather is avoided. I suppose intense summer weather is what makes us enjoy the annual transition to fall so much?!?
Occasional waves of showers and t’storms continue to be a huge part of our forecast for the next 24-36 hours. The biggest chance of something could be this evening and overnight. We should keep some clouds Thursday, and the wind will shift to the west/southwest during the afternoon. Wind then goes to northwest Friday. This should drive much drier air toward us so expect less humid conditions as we get closer to the weekend.
Dew Points: 68-72
Wind: E/SE 10-15
Severe potential does increase into early evening…especially for northern counties. It still looks like heavy downpours and spotty wind damage are the biggest threats across Northeast Kansas. Isolated flash flooding may still become a concern too because of heavy rainfall rate or where ground is already saturated. After Thursday night, high pressure builds across the region to provide sunny, hot conditions for Friday and the upcoming weekend. Do what you wish, and what you can in those elements, because summer break is about to come to a screeching halt.

Rain may impact outdoor activities, but storminess is more likely this evening….
