Flooding concerns remain high as additional storms approach


*A Flash Flood Watch continues for all of northeast Kansas until 7pm Tuesday*
*Numerous rivers have Flood Warnings*

After scattered thunderstorms Friday night through Saturday night, much cooler air started working into the region. Highs were only in the 60s Sunday and some communities stayed in the 50s Monday. That is certainly unseasonably chilly for the second half of May.

The work week began with early morning sunshine before clouds rapidly increased. Storms hit yesterday afternoon with some heavy rainfall. Rounds of heavy rain continued overnight, but northern counties got a break as the bigger batch moved east. Watch for flooded areas. Do not go around barricades and always turn around if you encounter water over the road.

Periods of rain and thunder continue through midday before tapering into the afternoon. Wind will be strong and gusty. Clouds may break between 2-5pm.

Greater Topeka Tuesday
Highs: 68-72
Wind: E/SE 20-35

Wednesday will still be breezy but drier. Expect mostly sunny conditions with highs in the upper 70s. Sunshine will be hard to come by toward the weekend with such an unsettled pattern, and it begins to become warmer and more humid. T’storms become likely Thursday through Saturday with lows in the 60s and highs between 79-83. Isolated storms on Sunday and Memorial Day will make everything take so much longer to recede and dry.
