Active week coming our way

Feels good to make it to Friday and after a cloudy, cool week around the area, you'll be happy to know there SHOULD be some sunshine this weekend. We've had a week of below normal temperatures, but we expect that will get turned around very soon.

Enjoy the weekend and at least a little break from stormy weather here in the Plains. Next week has the potential of being an active week of weather from Sunday night - right into Memorial Day weekend. There's still a chance we will spare part of the holiday weekend from storms, but the exact details won't be known for a few more days yet.

Saturday: Very slight chance for one or two storms that could pop up. They would be so few and far between that it's not worth cancelling anything outdoors yet.

Sunday: Most of the day is looking dry with a little more south wind to deal with. This should be our warmest day over the weekend. A big western storm will begin to break into pieces and the first piece will be coming out of the Rockies by Sunday evening. Storms are likely to develop in northeast Colorado and western Nebraska into the evening hours. They will then spread into northern Kansas into Sunday night. Hail and wind will be the biggest threat with these storms. 

Monday: Morning showers/storms across central and northern Kansas. Those will spread southeast into the afternoon, so late in the day, the western half of the state is looking dry. 

Tuesday: More storms possible just about anywhere in Kansas (except in the southwest)

Wednesday: Mainly dry (with the exception of a stray storm in eastern Kansas)

Thursday: Storms return to Kansas with some heavy rainfall and potential for severe weather

Have a great weekend everyone! We will have updates on the active weather coming soon.
