WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Stable weather is expected in the wake of the weather system that brought beneficial rainfall to Kansas on Thursday and Friday.

Despite the rain, much of Kansas remains in a drought, with about 30-40% still in an exceptional drought. The weekend will remain dry with mild temperatures in the 70s each day. Rain chances will return to western Kansas on Sunday afternoon/evening. The weather pattern almost looks “summer-like”, meaning chances of late day showers and storms in the week ahead. Most of this activity will be hit or miss and unorganized, so the severe weather threat will be minimal. Highs will remain in the 70s through Tuesday with 80s returning towards the end of the week. As we head into Memorial Day weekend, storm chances return for Saturday and again Memorial Day.
