A soggy Friday for much of KAKEland

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

A soggy Friday is on the way for much of KAKEland. Rain showers could cause some flooding concerns as we head toward the weekend in South Central and Southeast Kansas.

An area of low pressure moving from the Texas Panhandle into Central Oklahoma will be responsible for the wet weather across KAKEland. Scattered showers and isolated rumbles of thunder will be possible throughout the entire day for all corners of Kansas.  The rain will exit from west to east late Friday into very early Saturday morning.

The heaviest rainfall fall totals will be across South Central and Southeast Kansas where 1-2” is expected with locally higher amounts possible. Western Kansas rain totals will likely range from 0.25” to 0.75” with North Central Kansas picking up less than 0.25”.

Localized flooding will be possible across South Central and Southeast Kansas. Avoid low lying and flood prone areas Friday and Saturday. A flood watch is in effect for Sedgwick, Sumner, Butler, Cowley, Greenwood, Elk and Chautauqua counties from late Thursday through Saturday morning
