Tuesday, June 12 Overnight Forecast

Heat builds again later this week.

The morning rain and cooler weather was certainly welcome across the area.  Rain totals weren't all that heavy south of I-44 with most spots picking up less than a quarter of an inch.  The rain was heavier north of I-44 where 1 to 2" rainfall amounts were more common.  Leftover clouds today also took a bite out of the heat wave with most locations topping out in the 80s as opposed to 90s.

We can look forward to one more day of this before we return to heat and sunshine.

For tonight, we'll find mostly clear skies and quiet weather.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to break out over Kansas before sliding southeast by morning.  A risk for widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue through the morning, ending from north to south during the afternoon.  Afternoon highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.

The upper-level ridge that delivered the hot and dry weather this past weekend will build back into the area on Thursday.  A warm front pushing north through the area might be able to trigger a few isolated thunderstorms, but most areas will stay dry with highs in the low 90s.

Hot and mainly dry weather is expected Friday and Saturday.  Afternoon highs will be in the low to mid 90s.  Isolated storms look a little more likely Sunday afternoon with highs in the low to mid 90s again.

The atmosphere looks to take a much wetter look Monday into Tuesday.  A front will also be pressing south into the region along with some upper-level storminess pushing north into the area.  All of these ingredients should lead to scattered showers and thunderstorms Monday and Tuesday along with a pullback in afternoon highs from the 90s back into the 80s.
