Dry for tonight; flooding a concern to start the workweek


*A flash flood watch will be in effect for all of northeast Kansas from 1 pm on Monday until 7 pm on Tuesday.*

Clouds will pass by overhead tonight, but no rain will fall from thos clouds tonight. It will be a dry, but cool night, with overnight lows in the 40s to right around 50°.

It will be a dry start to the day on Monday as clouds will just increase throughout the morning. Scattered showers and storms will start to move in during the afternoon. Limited sunshine and rain chances will keep temperatures trapped in the 50s and 60s.

Late in the day into the evening, there is the slight risk for strong to severe storms with hail and high winds being a possibility. The threat of a tornado is very low, with the top threat being heavy rain that could result in some localized flooding.

Between the rain Monday night into Tuesday morning, it will continue to stay mainly cloudy as temperatures bottom out just in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Widespread showers and storms will persist through the first half of Tuesday. Some stronger storms will be possible midday. Again, the tornado threat isn’t completely zero, but the slight risk is more so for hail and high winds. The main concern will be how much rain stacks up and if it could trigger some flooding in spots.

Storms will become more broken and isolated late Tuesday afternoon into the evening as temperatures max out in the upper 60s and low to mid 70s.

Drier weather spreads in Tuesday night, to go along with low temperatures in the upper 50s to right around 60°. By the time that drier pattern moves in, an additional half of an inch to 3 inches of rain is expected across northeast Kansas, but locally higher amounts could be possible.

Much of Wednesday will be dry with breaks of sunshine, helping high temperatures crack back into the low 80s. There is the slight chance for a few showers and storms late in the day on Wednesday.

Beyond that, the second half of the week will be on the warm side with highs in the 70s and 80s. However, it will be unsettled as well, with periodic chances of showers and storms Thursday through the upcoming weekend.
