After a relatively dry and warm stretch of weather lately, Kansas will see a return to a more active and wet pattern through next week.
A parade of upper-level storms coming off the pacific will be bringing several periods of heavy rain and snows from Southern California to New Mexico and Kansas as well.
Heavy rain drenched the normally dry Phoenix area on Monday, causing flooding of streets and snarling morning traffic. The same system also dumped heavy snows in the mountains around Flagstaff.
This system will move into Kansas Tuesday night into Wednesday, bringing rain and thunderstorms to the area. More upper-level storms will move into the plains over the next 7-10 days, bringing even more chances for much-needed precipitation.
Stay tuned to KAKE as this wet pattern evolves.
