Next storm on the way -
Based on my count, this is the 4th storm to impact Kansas in just over a week. This won't produce as much rain as the previous one did, but we are still looking at a statewide event with some good soaking moisture.
Take a look where the storm is now: Using the brand new satellite that was put into space last fall, we can see it's spinning out near the 4 corners area.
When does the rain start? Showers (and a few storms too) will be coming back to western Kansas late tonight (Friday night) and then spreading east through the day on Saturday. We won't have severe weather, but some thunder is possible, especially early Saturday. Generally speaking, widespread .25-.50" can be expected, but if you are under some thunderstorms, you'll likely to get over .50".
And - if you don't get enough rain this weekend, another storm is on the way (#5 in over a week) will be arriving next Tuesday/Wednesday. Computer models aren't exactly set on how much precipitation could fall, but it's another storm to watch with potential more soaking rains on the way.
