Expect a drier and more comfortable stretch in the week ahead

Weather

Thunderstorms stayed away from most locations on Tuesday and Wednesday, then overnight rain and thunder developed and became more widespread into early Thursday. Frequent lightning also made for plenty of thunder too which typically bothers so many that are trying to sleep.

Yesterday’s storminess was lifting in and moving from east to west with an upper low pressure system over West Texas. Some thunderstorms did produce brief heavy downpours, but the risk of rain is tiny today and temps will remain near normal. There should be more sunshine today with continued breezes from the north/northeast.

Greater Topeka Friday
​Highs: 81-85
​Wind: E/NE 10-20

Mostly clear and pleasant Friday night, but watch out for mosquitoes around 7:30-9:00pm. We should be sunny to partly cloudy Saturday with highs in the low to maybe mid 80s to start our weekend. On Sunday, a front approaches which may kick off isolated thunderstorms. Drier air invades Sunday evening and conditions will become very pleasant for much of next week. Dew points Sunday night into early Monday may drop into the 40s which is about as dry as air can get in summer for this part of the country.

Wind may be strong at times as we wrap up the weekend and it may even stay rather breezy on Monday. Nonetheless, expect slightly cooler temps and less humid air. Get ready because it will feel like early spring instead of summer.
