Flooding still a threat; slight risk for strong storms on Tuesday


*A flash flood watch is in effect for all of northeast Kansas until 7 pm on Tuesday.*

Rounds of showers and storms will continue on through the night into Tuesday. The threat of severe weather for tonight is low, but flooding is still a concern. It will be a rainy, but cool night with lows in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

Widespread rain is still expected through Tuesday morning, before some breaks in the rain move in midday. However, there is the slight risk for strong to severe storms during the afternoon and early evening as storms become more broken and isolated. The main threats out of any stronger storms would be for large hail and damaging winds, but a tornado or two cannot be entirely ruled out either.

Another day of some rain and little sunshine on Tuesday will keep high temperatures confined to the upper 60s to right around 70°.

Drier weather will finally spread in across northeast Kansas for Tuesday evening as the clouds clear out and temperatures fall into the 50s.

By the time this round of rain is all said and done late Tuesday, an additional of 1 to 4 inches of rain will have fallen, with locally higher amounts possible in spots. With swelled up waterways and saturated ground already in place, flooding will continue to be a concern throughout Tuesday, as well.

Some sunshine finally returns for Wednesday as temperatures rebound back into the 70s.

This dry time won’t last long though. Rain chances return late Wednesday night, with periodic chances for scattered showers and storms for the second half of the week as high temperatures bounce between the 70s and 80s.
