A period of rain is expected this afternoon but should remain light. At least drought is out…
Today will continue the theme of gray skies and gloomy conditions. By late evening, rain should start clearing from northwest to southeast. Becoming breezy/windy. High: 50s.
Tonight: Rain turns steady.
Showers likely. Cloudy, with a low around 48.
Rain will taper off from west to east Saturday morning. Clouds will thicken up again Friday afternoon, limiting our daytime warming quite a bit. High temperatures will be in the low and mid 70s.
At least our drought is out. So, it’s not surprising that we’ll warm things up in this stretch of sun-filled weather. Mother’s Day Weekend is upon us, youth sports are in full swing and college graduations are happening – nothing like some warm Kansas sunshine to celebrate!
We’ll have wet weather for the evening commute.
We can get the rain chances discussion out of the way right now.
Temperatures are expected to reach just 51 degrees for the day, the NWS said. Winds NE 5-10 miles per hour. If not that soon, certainly by the sunset period.
And showers are on tap for Saturday with a 100 percent chance of rain. Wind shear and instability parameters are both lacking, meaning severe weather is unlikely. But timing, the storm’s track, and wind’s trajectory are really playing in our favor here.

The weekend forecast is GORGEOUS! Saturday’s high will only be in the mid 50s and we could potentially see 1-3 inches of rain. Winds: E 5-15 miles per hour.
Tomorrow night: Outside chance of some showers or sprinkles, but the good news is that skies slowly clear. Temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 70s in the afternoon.
