TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Highs today will be slightly warmer than yesterday and more in the low-mid 80s. Highs all week will be in the 70s and 80s with dry conditions. Any rain that models are picking up for the next 8 days are low, less than 0.10″, so not confident enough to put in the forecast due to timing uncertainty on if there is going to be rain when it will occur. One model has Saturday afternoon into Saturday night with the other model is producing rain next Monday.

Did increase the cloud coverage tomorrow and Wednesday due to the effects from Tropical Storm Beta as it continues to work its way northward. There is some uncertainty on how much cloud cover and specifically when. The short term models are keeping tonight mostly clear with clouds increasing tomorrow afternoon while other computer models are increasing clouds tonight. This is really just a matter of if there’s going to be clouds tomorrow morning or not. There’s also a chance some of the rain makes it as far north as I-35 late tomorrow but that still leaves most of northeast KS dry.
