Remnants of Gordon are closer and instability is still prevalent across the region. This means that rain chances go up today. The heaviest should be in the east and southeast counties of Northeast Kansas. Drier air tries to end the rain probability, and that should happen over the next 18-24 hours.
We must remain diligent with high water concerns and flooded rivers for just a bit longer but much better weather is on the way. Over a four day period, spots like Salina, Clay Center, Manhattan, Fort Riley, Blue Rapids and Marysville received 7-10 inches of rainfall.
Expect a cloudy, occasionally wet and somewhat cooler day. The sprinkles or patchy drizzle of yesterday gets replaced with more widespread rain. The unsettled patterns sticks around into the very early stages of our weekend. Temps will only reach the low to mid 70s, and many spots may actually stay in the upper 60s to the far north/northwest.
Greater Topeka Friday…
Dew Points: 66-70
Wind: NE 10-15mph
There should be drier conditions for much of Saturday and Sunday, although clouds may be stubborn to move away. Sunday should be partly cloudy, and it could be mainly clear Monday to Wednesday of next week with slowly warming temps. It should be a wonderfully pleasant time, although it may become rather breezy. The dry pattern may go through all of next week so the corn harvest can kick in big time.
