Friday afternoon and Saturday, more widespread rain and scattered storms will parade through our region as an upper-level storm slowly pin-wheels its way across Kansas from the Colorado.
A few folks could see some significant rainfall where the rain becomes locally heavy at times but widespread severe weather is not expected. A few stronger storms could produce some small hail or brief wind gusts to nearly 60 mph.
The cloudy skies and rain will also lead to cooler days Friday and Saturday with afternoon highs in the low to mid-80s for most of Kansas which are about 10 degrees below average for late August.
The slow moving storm system and its wet weather will move out of eastern Kansas late Sunday followed by fair skies and warming temperatures through most of next week.
