Meteorologist Mark Larson says we'll will stay in a wet, stormy weather rut for a few more days with a stalled front anchored over southern Kansas enhancing the chances for more storms and locally heavy rain.
Thursday afternoon widespread rain and storms should be long-gone with a few peeks of sunshine possible at times.
Highs will be in the 70s for most but a few lower 80s are possible over south central Kansas. Isolated storms may start to pop-up in the heat of the day with more heavy downpours expected.
Areas of heavy rainfall will once again move into our area from the southwest Thursday night. Severe weather is not expected, but a wide swath of 1-2 inch rainfall will be possible over portions of central and eastern Kansas,
Scattered storm chances will linger Friday with highs the 70s and 80s.
We'll warm up a bit this weekend with chances for spotty storms Saturday and Sunday nights.
