End of strong to severe storms for today, cooler for this weekend


A cluster of showers and storms has already cleared out of northeast Kansas after bringing forth some damaging wind gusts early this morning.

As you head out this morning, slick roadways will be a concern, as well as knocked out traffic signals. Numerous power outages have been reported in spots across northeast Kansas this morning, including portions of Topeka.

Even though the rain has come to an end, it will be a fairly cloudy start to the day. However, increasing sunshine is expected for late this morning into the afternoon.

Even with ample sunshine for the second half of the day, it won’t be nearly as hot and humid as it was on Friday. High temperatures are expected to range from the upper 70s to middle 80s, to go along with a breezy north wind at 10 to 20 mph. Not only will it be cooler, but also more comfortable as it won’t be nearly as muggy for today.

Much of the same is expected for Sunday. No rain is expected to start off the new week as sunshine will dominate. It will feel nearly identical to Saturday though, with highs in the low to mid 80s and low humidity. There will be a north wind again for Sunday, but it won’t be quite as breezy with just a sustained wind at 5 to 10 mph.

There is the chance of a couple showers and storms for Monday. Otherwise it will be a mix of sun and clouds with high temperatures maxing out in the 80s. Beyond Monday though, temperatures will gradually start to warm right back up with 90s expected for the second half of the week.
