Saturday was occasionally rainy, but much of it seemed light and early in the day. There were showers and thunder overnight Saturday into Sunday when most of the energy moved over northeast Kansas. The dry slot came across Sunday, so we had broken clouds early with just a few sprinkles from time to time later in the day.
The best news from the weekend system was that most rainfall amounts were low. That should help considerably, but there is a strong low pressure area heading this way for late week so make plans accordingly.
Clouds and spotty drizzle should dominate early Monday, otherwise we may remain mainly cloudy to overcast. Temps should warm dramatically in the days ahead. However, most spots locally will stay in the low to mid 50s this afternoon with a steady north breezy.
Greater Topeka Monday…
Wind: N/NE 10-20
Tuesday and Wednesday should be pleasant as this rainmaker keeps getting farther away and high pressure builds. A low pressure system is approaching California, and it should arrive in the nations’ midsection by Thursday. Warmer air from Mexico and Texas get pulled north to give us our warmest temps of the season on Thursday and Friday.
Showers may linger for daybreak Saturday with much cooler air. Clouds should decrease for more sun Sunday and next Monday as temps try to climb once more.
