Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that another round of heavier rains are headed to the Kansas for the overnight hours. Some small hail and gusty winds are possible, but severe weather isn't expected to be a big concern for our area through the night.
Rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches look possible south central and eastern Kansas by early Friday morning. Low temperatures will fall back into the upper 50s for the west, with low to mid 60s elsewhere.
Friday will start out with a few showers in the east, but the best chance for late afternoon storms will shift back to northwest Kansas. Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Some strong storms with heavy rainfall will move from west to east as we head into Friday evening.
The weekend won't be completely dry, but chances for rain become more scattered, and most of it should happen at night. Highs will be warming back into the 80s for most of Kansas. We don't expect severe storms this weekend, but some heavy downpours and lightning will be something to watch for.
