A cold front bisects the state this morning running roughly from Kiowa to Emporia, then along I-35 to Kansas City as I write this. It is not expected to move much today. To the south, warm moist air will bring an enhanced risk of severe weather to areas south and east of he Turnpike. Threats are hail and straight line wind, due to the wind flow in most of the atmosphere being along the front rather than at an angle to it.
To the north of the front showers should taper off by mid-morning and sunshine should prevail later in the day. Another round of rainfall is expected over much of the state tonight, with highest amounts in the east and south.
A flood watch has been posted for the heavier-rain areas.
After we get through tomorrow, skies clear and the end of the week will be sunny and mild. Rain is possible again Saturday.
