Monday's Video Forecast - August 14

Chances for Rain, Storms Continue into the Weekend

Lows tonight will drop into the mid 70s. Greatest chance for storms will be Sunday night into Monday.

Early morning fog should burn off rather quickly Sunday, with temperatures quickly rising through the afternoon. Storms will gradually diminish once we reach sunset Sunday evening. Rain chances for the second half of the week and into next weekend will be a little lower but temperatures will be a little higher around 90 degrees each day with overnight lows only dropping into the 73 to 75 degree range.

Another day of scattered to widespread storms is expected as recycled moisture combines with a disturbance passing to the north... and additional help arrives with a backdoor cold front edging in over the Northeast Plains.

A chance of rain is not a certainty; these storms will be most widespread south of US 72 on Saturday, and most of us get away with no rain at all on Sunday. Storms should remain across western Kansas and some may be strong to severe. Afternoon rain chances will be around 50-60% through Thursday, but the overnights should be mostly dry except for a few isolated showers.

The following Monday, August 21st will be the solar eclipse, but its much too early to nail down specifics on the what we can expect that afternoon weather-wise.

Rain chances remain high Tuesday but a ridge of high pressure building strength over North America and the upper air flow will shift and frontal boundaries will remain well north of the area.
