Showers and storms developed late Wednesday afternoon to our south/southwest. The Wichita area got hit first, and most of those thunderstorms charged toward Kansas City so most of the action hit our southeast counties.
Some rain could occur to the east early today. Scattered showers may also develop this afternoon in the cooler, unstable air on the storm system’s backside. High temperatures will be considerably lower as air from Canada and the Intermountain West gets pulled south.
Greater Topeka Thursday…
Wind: N/NW 15-30
It will not be the significant drop that we endured late last week, and numbers should stay well above freezing Thursday night and Friday night. We are near our average last frost date, and I don’t see anything close to 35 or colder so maybe we’re in the clear! Garden time!!
We start warming Friday with more sun. Mostly sunny, breezy and warmer Saturday. What a great day that should be. Easter may be partly sunny with a slight chance for t’storms….especially as the day progresses. Temperatures will be higher so expect it to be about 10-12 degrees above normal.
Scattered storm chances continue Monday with possible showers Tuesday into early Wednesday of next week.
