Becoming pleasant with warmer days ahead


After big warmth on Easter Sunday, some early morning t’storms hit many spots before daybreak Monday. Clouds lingered, although the sky did become partly cloudy for a time during the midday period.

Tuesday gave us clouds and even cooler air. Sprinkles and scattered showers hit communities south of Topeka as a system moved from northwest Texas and Oklahoma to Missouri. So much of what happened was on a Wichita, Emporia and Ottawa line with many sprinkles toward I-70.

Temperatures were held in the 50s yesterday, but more pleasant conditions are expected for midweek. Wednesday should have light breezes and comfortable temperatures as the sky becomes mostly sunny.

Greater Topeka Wednesday…
​Highs: 70-75
​Wind: W/NW 6-12

Warmer afternoons and breezy late week with a clear to partly cloudy sky. Thursday should be wonderful. We look to be dry with numbers that will be well above normal. Highs should hit 75 to 80 degrees.

Any rain chance looks tiny until scattered thunderstorms hit overnight Friday into early Saturday morning and there may be more toward Sunday night into Monday. If that timing is correct, much of the upcoming weekend will be windy, warm and partly cloudy. Wind will likely be stronger on Saturday.

We may get a bigger chance of rain Monday night and Tuesday. Hard to believe that May begins in just a few days.
