A very weak upper air system is passing by and brought showers about 6 hours earlier than scheduled which is having some impact on our evening after a partly sunny day.
I fully expect scattered showers tonight into at least half the day Friday before finally dissipating and moving out. So while I’m not forecasting a complete washout Friday, the first half of the day certainly could be a washout before seeing improvements.
There is no thunder in the forecast and rainfall amounts will be light.
The weekend still looks pretty nice but it does have a chance of rain included. Saturday’s chance of rain is mainly in western sections at 20%. Although, there is one computer model hitting the chance of rain harder in eastern Kansas. All other forecast models used in the forecast are much less aggressive keeping the area dry. That said, I’ll keep a close eye on any trends or changes Saturday.
Saturday night into Sunday morning will bring scattered showers or a few thunderstorms. By the afternoon Sunday, partly sunny and much warmer with the focus for thunderstorms shifting to the western half of Kansas and Nebraska closer to the next system coming out of the Rockies.
