Through midweek, morning temperatures were in the mid to upper 50s and there was some patchy fog. Those numbers are usually hard to come by in late July and early August. Thursday started slightly warmer with sprinkles and light showers between Topeka and Kansas City. Much of that occurred between 4 and 6am as a weak upper disturbance drifted down from Nebraska.
Light wind and relatively low dew points have been the story, but both elements have increased slightly. Sunny conditions should dominate the sky and wind gets stronger. Friday might also be just a little more humid with many spots starting the day with temperatures closer to 70 degrees.
Greater Topeka Friday…
Dew Points: 60-65
Wind: S/SW 15-25+
Expect mostly clear and quiet nights with bright and hot days toward our first weekend of the month. The much warmer air isn’t as rough without mugginess. We may get a little taste of that by Saturday into Sunday. Wind should be fairly strong Saturday with isolated showers and storms. Clouds my block the sun for extended periods as well.
Precipitation chances may increase early next week. By Monday, a cold front tries to cross with scattered showers t’storms into Tuesday and that should be followed by slightly cooler air.
