Next round of rain coming soon

Looks like the severe weather threat is now behind us for the rest of the week here in Kansas. But another storm system is going to push into the Plains for the end of the week.

We are going to be in some much cooler air now for awhile, and that will minimize the overall potential of hail and wind producing storms.

GFS (American model)
European model
Take a look at the next batch of moisture coming our way Thursday night (for western Kansas) and central and eastern Kansas will see the rain Friday late afternoon and into the night. Areas that have had flooding in the last few weeks will have to keep an eye on creeks and streams. The two different models that we rely so heavily on continue to show widespread rains, with the heaviest possibly sliding across the northern half of the state.

Once this next system pushes on through, we expect the weather will be calming down for awhile. A few light rain showers may develop Monday/Tuesday of next week (May 2, 3), but beyond that, drier weather takes over for awhile.

I been wondering how May 7th looks as the NASCAR Sprint Cup race is that night in Kansas City. Don't need rain delays or severe weather at the track.
