We had pleasant holiday weekend weather. The thought last week is that it would be very nice over the three day period if not too windy. Strong wind is usually the one thing that can spoil a pretty day. The breeze was up some Friday/Saturday, and it was certainly windy Sunday. Temperatures worked out well, but a pesky shower may have it your church early Sunday before we could get more area wide sunshine.
Overnight, some thunderstorms moved through with a disturbance across Nebraska. Heaviest rain was in Dickinson and Morris counties. Lightning and thunder probably woke many between 1-2am near Manhattan, 2-3am in Emporia and around 3-4am in Topeka.
Today as we all try to focus on work, school and various activities expect a mostly cloudy sky as the wind becomes more northwesterly this afternoon. Temps will start mild, but the continued push of numbers late day should be stymied by the different wind direction.
Greater Topeka MondayHighs: 72-76
Wind: W/NW 12-22
We start getting more clouds and stronger breezes Monday night into Tuesday as a weak disturbance comes across northeast Kansas. If enough moisture is available, there may be a few scattered showers early Tuesday before partial clearing takes place. The temperature pattern goes higher with partly cloudy conditions for midweek.
It becomes warmer and breezy late week and into the weekend. We look to be dry with numbers that will be well above normal. Any rain chance looks tiny until some scattered thunderstorms try to pop Saturday morning and again Sunday afternoon.
