Meteorologist Mark Larson we've been dealing with lots of storms and heavy rain lately but a break from the wet weather is coming. We'll see more scattered storms Wednesday but drier cooler weather will arrive Thursday.
Another round of scattered thunderstorms is expected Wednesday afternoon. A few storms will bring locally heavy rainfall and more flood concerns. Storms that develop in the heat of the afternoon will move very slowly leading to more isolated pockets of big-time rain.
Wednesday highs will range from the upper 70s west to the lower 80s over eastern Kansas.
Rain and storms will end Wednesday night as cold front pushes into our area from the northeast ushering-in drier air and cooler temperatures for week's end.
Right now, most of our holiday weekend looks nearly storm-free with gusty winds and warmer temps climbing back to around 90 degrees.
