What We’re Tracking:
- Shower early, then clearing
- Slightly cooler and sunny this weekend
- Next rain chance is Wednesday
The dry and stable air has drifted away and Gulf moisture has been working into Northeast Kansas from Texas and Oklahoma over the past day or two. After a period of sunny days and clear nights, we had increasing cloudiness yesterday and we are overcast this morning.
This rain chance is small early today. Sprinkles or light showers could visit until 7-9am, but might be about as late as we see a chance for precipitation. We should get decreasing clouds from midday to late afternoon. Areas toward Junction City, Abilene and Concordia will get more sun than areas east of Topeka where the clearing trend will take longer. Wind will be southwest at 15-25 so expect stronger breezes.
Greater Topeka Friday…
Dew Points: 40-44
Wind: SW 15-25
Weather for high school football tonight looks great for this late in the season. Temps in the low 60s with diminishing wind around kickoff and mid 50s with a mostly clear sky late. The days that follow should be decent, but wind on Saturday may be up which would have an impact on certain activities. Sunday could be a tad more pleasant with highs of 57-60. It appears a clear sky will be ours to enjoy throughout the weekend.
Next week looks uneventful for the first part with mild temps. Clouds likely increase Tuesday into Wednesday and the rain probabilities go up for midweek. The chance for rain remain low late week as we cruise into the last weekend of October.
