Good Tuesday morning! Hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and finally, the weather pattern is starting to change. The winds aloft are getting stronger as the first day of fall approaches. There is a pretty strong storm system that is crossing southern Canada and it's helping to push cooler air south across the central and northern Plains. Rainfall has been somewhat elusive in the month of September, but we are finally starting to see the chances return.
The best chance for measurable rain and storms Tuesday afternoon and evening will be over central and eastern Kansas. Farther west, a few storms may develop but they won't likely produce much moisture.
Wednesday and Thursday look mainly dry, but when you look at the map above, the storm that you see highlighted in Montana and northern Wyoming is forecast to slide southeast and bring some more rain to the area Thursday night and Friday. It's not likely to be a major rain maker, but we will likely end up getting some rain to fall during that time frame.
Another fairly significant cool down is in the works for the end of the week and into the weekend. Highs will cool back into the 70s by Friday and Saturday. Autumn weather is finally on the maps and we will start feeling more like September.

Storms Monday evening produced some major lightning and strong winds. We had a handful of 60-70 mph wind reports across central and south central Kansas. Some of the strongest winds rolled through Marion county.
