Stormy setup the rest of the week

Kansas is in the perfect spot to have several rounds of storms coming up the next several days. The biggest danger appears to be the threat of some heavier rainfall that could cause some flooding. I don't think we will see that many hail and/or wind storms.

Here's why we can't break out of the stormy stretch. The winds at roughly 20,000 feet above us are blowing right along the front (parallel), so it can't move much in either direction. And this leads to round after round of rainfall. 

European Model forecast for rain
GFS (American model) forecast for rain
Forecast model data continues to show central and eastern Kansas will get the heaviest rains. This data has changed from recent days, but between now and Saturday morning, several locations could get 1-2" of rain. 

Looking ahead to the start of next week:
Temperatures: Low 80s for highs
Humidity: High
Rain chances: Very low

Be sure to check in later this week as we look ahead to the holiday weekend forecast.
