Rain & some thunder, then expect very strong wind


​A High Wind Warning is posted for Cloud and Republic counties until 7pm.

A Wind Advisory is in effect for the rest of northeast Kansas from 10am through 7pm.

Sunday and Monday gave us mostly sunny and comfy conditions with highs in the upper 40s to mid-50s, then clouds increased Monday night and showers began early Tuesday.

A large upper disturbance entered the Central and Southern Plains for this midweek rain event. Yesterday had rainy periods with energy and instability nearby. A Flood Watch was posted across our western counties for last night through this evening as the heaviest rain batch approaches. Recent snowmelt with projected 1 to 2 inch rainfall amounts has prompted concerns over potential high water.

Wet through the lunch hour with some lightning and thunder possible. The stronger southeast wind may be enough to create minor damage so make sure to secure loose items.

Greater Topeka Wednesday…
​Highs: 59-64
​Wind: SE 20-40 with gusts over 50mph

It should become drier late Wednesday conditions with gusty wind. It may stay rather breezy Thursday and temperatures could be about 20 degrees cooler. Scattered snow showers will be possible with some lingering moisture and instability on the back side of the upper low.

Friday is the beginning of another pleasant stretch of weather for northeast Kansas. A partly cloudy sky will give us more sun than the previous three days and temperatures will start to warm Saturday.

It looks like a great period from Saturday to Tuesday with prevalent sunshine, mid 50s, and light wind. Too bad Spring Break will be over, but at least great weather should make getting back into routine a little easier.
