A storm system will slowly draw nearer to Kansas today and Wednesday. We can expect clouds to roll in right away Wednesday morning but areas of rain showers won't move in from the south until evening and last into early Thursday.
Rainfall amounts should end up around 0.25-0.50" but a little bit more is expected over far southern and southeast Kansas.
