The next round of rainfall will target south central and southeast Kansas into Tuesday night/early Wednesday. Mondays cold front has stalled out and will be coming back north in the next few days. At it moves back toward Kansas, we will get some more rain.

Western Kansas didn't get much rain and there's even been some problem with smoke coming south from the Canadian fires. Showers and storms are expected to develop and move out of eastern Colorado into western Kansas Wednesday evening/night. Although severe storms are not expected, there could be some pockets of heavier rainfall.

Get ready for the pattern shift at the end of the week. The big dome of high pressure will be shutting the Gulf of Mexico moisture down and allowing the heat to expand over the area. It won't take long to turn up the temperatures. On Friday, most of the area will be back into the 90s with 100s possible by Saturday and Sunday. Oh boy!
