Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says we’ve had a gloomy weekend and even more rain is on the way for the start of the work week.
Tonight, showers will continue across the state. Lows will fall into the low 60s for south central Kansas and the 50s for the rest of the state.
Tomorrow, a cold front will move into the state from the west. This front will move through western Kansas by lunch time, then it will stall over central Kansas. Showers and storms will form along this front, keeping widespread rain chances in the forecast for most of the state. Highs will reach the 60s behind the front in the west, the 70s in central Kansas.
The cold front won’t move all the way through the state until Tuesday evening. Highs on Tuesday will happen in the morning, reaching the upper 60s to lower 70s in central Kansas, ahead of the front. Temperatures will drop throughout the day.
Rain chances will finally come to an end Wednesday morning. By then, rain totals could reach 1 to 3 inches in the west and 4 to 6 inches in central Kansas.
Sunshine will take over on Wednesday as high pressure sets up over the plains through Thursday. Highs will only reach the upper 50s to lower 60s.
