We have another day of dry weather in store before things start to get a bit more complicated, at least in terms of forecasting! Wednesday will be dry throughout the day, but an approaching cold front will start to enter Kansas from Nebraska during the nighttime. This will help to develop an area of rain and thunderstorms that will move in from the northwest. As of now, rain will start to arrive in our region around 10pm Wednesday night, with the main show between the 1am and 4am. Thunderstorm activity will dampen after sunrise, but rain showers will linger throughout the day before calming down overnight. The bulk of this activity will be situated in western and central Kansas in the overnight hours and should stay to the south as it moves southeastward during the day. Latest model information has a large complex of thunderstorms moving through the region overnight Thursday into the first half of the day Friday. Should it verify, Friday could see decent precipitation totals in the region. Friday afternoon is looking predominantly dry.
July will say goodbye to 2016 crying as we face sporadic rain throughout the weekend. Newest information leave Saturday predominantly dry during the day and doesn't begin to form precipitation until Saturday night into Sunday morning. In fact, the first half of Sunday is looking quite active as a large area of thunderstorms is forecasted to move in from the west. If this forecast manages to verify, Sunday could bring a decent amount of rain to the area. Sunday is quite a ways away in the meteorological world.
August will begin dry and warmer, with temperatures Monday and Tuesday in the low 90s with mostly sunny skies. The first week of the month does not bring very many rain chances with it until later on in the week.
