Avoid high water areas, more heavy rainfall expected!


Numerous counties have a Flash Flood Warning issued until 7:45am: Morris, Pottawatomie, Riley and Wabaunsee. A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for all of northeast Kansas until 1am Thursday.

We’ve had overnight rounds of rain and thunder, and this pattern seems very similar to what we experienced last week. At least we had an incredibly pleasant weekend or most of us would be extremely frustrated by now.

A front in Nebraska moved across late Sunday night, and another disturbance is doing the same through early this morning. Some thunderstorms have produced gusty wind, frequent lightning, heavy rainfall and small hail.

Today, periods of rain and storminess should be expected. High water problems may be widespread. We will need to monitor the impact of heavy rain since streams, creeks and rivers are still relatively high from what occurred just days ago and rainfall amounts are close to 2-3 inches over the past 36 hours.

Greater Topeka Tuesday
​Highs: 64-69
​Wind: E/NE 10-15

The biggest rain totals of the entire period may occur overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. Moisture will keep building until that time and main energy from the approaching low pressure will be overhead.

The temperature pattern should hold near steady. Thursday will be considerably cooler as chilly air surges in and clouds will be stubborn. Friday should be pleasant and mild with a partly cloudy sky. This weekend looks good with mostly sunny to partly cloudy conditions with low 70s for Mother’s Day.
