From mild to hot... changes ahead

The rain just keeps coming and coming. I know there are some locations that had more than 5 or 6 inches of rain this weekend. Believe it or not, but last Thursdays cold front stalled over the area and has been hanging around for several days. It's finally beginning to wash out today and our chances for storms will be going down quickly. A few storms may pop up tonight (Monday night) over the area, but they will be few and far between. 

We still expect to see hotter temperatures kicking in for Tuesday and Wednesday. Looks like we will head back into the 90s. I don't think there will be very many (maybe not any) 100 degree days this week. The high humidity and wet ground should hold the temperatures back even when the sun comes out. 
There is a storm system west of the Rockies that will be impacting the area by Thursday evening/Friday. It's going to drive another cold front down into Kansas, which will help develop storms at the end of the week. Our temperatures should cool down into the 80s too.

Some 24 hour rainfall totals (through 7 a.m. today)
Wichita: 3.21"
KWCH Studio: 1.97"
Winfield: 0.92"
Hutch: 0.74"
Newton: 0.56"

We got .9 inch of rain on Sunday. Love this weather as we've been canning and the low temps really help. As always, thanks for the great info.
