Wet Weekend

A weak front will remain stalled across the KION coverage area Sunday leaving skies partly cloudy and keeping the chance of a few showers in the forecast. Then, a cold upper level low to our west will throw rounds of heavier showers at us Monday into Tuesday. We'll begin to dry out on Wednesday with another system possible later in the week.


Sunday: Partly cloudy with isolated showers possible into the evening. Cool, with highs in the upper 40s to 50s.

Overnight: Partly cloudy with an isolated shower possible. Shower chances increase toward dawn. Lows in the 40s with a few 30s in the south.

Monday: Partly cloudy with isolated showers. Brief heavy rain and small hail possible. Cool, with highs in the 50s for most areas.

Extended: Showers linger into Tuesday with the upper level low cut off just to our west. Temperatures stay cool, if not cold with highs remaining in the upper 40s to 50s. We’ll dry out starting Wednesday, but won’t necessarily warm up! In fact, highs look to remain cool for this time of year with mainly 50s—but lows will get colder as the air dries out. The next system will approach our area late Thursday into Friday.

This week's normal temperatures:

LOW: 43ºF
