There were two things that I wanted you to remember from the last time we spoke on Friday. That Saturday would become very windy after early morning rain blew through, and that Sunday and Monday would be extremely pleasant before more rain arrived. Saturday’s winds were gusting over 50mph and minor damage reports were filed. Sunday and Monday was mostly sunny and comfy with highs in the upper 40s to mid 50s.
A large upper disturbance entered the Central and Southern Plains last night for developing rain. Today, we get rainy periods, then occasional showers and thunderstorms will energy and instability nearby. A Flood Watch has been posted across our western counties for this evening through Wednesday evening. Recent snowmelt with projected 1 to 2 inch rainfall amounts has prompted concerns over potential high water.
Wet and breezy today with some lightning and thunder possible. The stronger southeast wind will continue to bring moisture into the region.
Greater Topeka Tuesday…
Wind: SE 15-25
The midweek forecast has drier conditions with gusty wind late Wednesday. It may stay rather breezy Thursday and temperatures may be about 20 degrees cooler. Snow showers are also a possibility. Friday is the beginning of another pleasant stretch of weather for northeast Kansas. A partly cloudy sky will give us more sun than the previous three days and temperatures will start to warm Saturday.
It looks like a great weekend with prevalent sunshine, mid 50s, and light wind. The warming trend many continue into Monday and Tuesday of next week. Too bad Spring Break will be over for many in this area.
