Showers and thunderstorms are expected to roll through eastern Kansas late this (FRI) afternoon and evening. Meteorologist Kris Sanders, with the National Weather Service in Topeka, says the threat of tornadoes is low... but high winds and locally heavy rains are likely.
When will the rain begin? That's hard to say, but Sanders expects thunderstorms to start moving through the area late this (FRI) afternoon.
Sanders says the storms will help push temperatures lower, making it unseasonably cooler this weekend across eastern Kansas. For the latest, most up-to-date weather, visit Topeka's National Weather Service website.
