Temperatures are running 4 degrees below normal this May, and 8 of the first 12 days of the month have had highs of 67 or below. However, we are about to become much warmer so we’ll see what that does to the numbers.
Saturday was cloudy and cool with sprinkles and occasional brief showers. Sunday started with lingering clouds and spotty showers before it become more pleasant for most. Yesterday was incredibly nice after some foggy areas with sunshine, very light wind and low 70s. We talked about it being near perfect and it was!
Today, the wind comes up slightly and it becomes a little more humid. It will be much warmer, and it will become our first day this May to have highs above 80 degrees.
Greater Topeka Tuesday
Wind: S/SE 10-15
Tuesday night and Wednesday should be partly cloudy and much warmer with isolated t’storms. Lows should stay in the 60s and highs may be around the 80-84 degree mark. Our warmest Topeka temp this season has been 87.
Thursday and Friday may be a few degrees warmer with a much stronger south/southwest wind. By the upcoming weekend, we start getting a slightly higher risk of rain and thunder. Saturday afternoon storms may impact graduation ceremonies or parties. The overall temperature pattern may start backing off just a touch. Sunday may begin with morning showers, otherwise it becomes partly sunny.
Check ahead for camping reservations as many lakes and parks still have high water problems. Also, get ready for a bumper crop of mosquitoes soon because there is so much standing, stagnant water from the excessive rains over the past 15 days.
