Flooding rains ease - watching Bill - shifting weather pattern

Emergency managers in Houston preparing for Tropical Storm Bill
After dealing with some flooding rainfall Sunday night and early Monday, it's nice to have a quiet radar again. Rivers that are out of their banks should continue to go down this afternoon and into the night. We will be closely watching Tropical Storm Bill as the storm heads north through the next few days. Inland flooding is imminent from Texas up through Oklahoma. Places that had more than 300% of their annual rainfall in May are now on track to get a soaking during the next 24-36 hours.


The moisture track should stay south and east of Kansas, so flooding isn't that likely around here. It is a close call, but we are confident that much of the state will have dry weather through the rest of the week. A few showers and storms may sneak into northern Kansas Wednesday night or Thursday, but those will remain very spotty.
Our weather pattern is about to change by Father's Day and into early next week. High pressure will be sliding east from the Rockies and should allow for some hot, dry weather into our 4th week of June. I expect more 90 degree temperatures and some sunshine too... perfect for the wheat harvest that is about to move into high gear around here.

I love this over view of the upcoming weather. Thank you for mentioning TS Bill and it's possible impact on KS.
