Every Wednesday joy is Wednesday here now aren't at some really nice rain in Riverside Riley knew it would not too far from. From your studios there it is and in that I understand that they really get drenched out button southeast Kansas that. We're really got hit hard. Yes you know it was a busy morning I feel like a lot of areas inside our viewing area especially and Sedgwick county you know getting some nice so kings and ice beneficial rain to getting a little bit too much. In southeastern Kansas late last night and earlier this morning and I don't know if you guys heard or not but there were actually couple of deaths in recorded in Montgomery County. And it was due to that flooding there was at one time. In some homes about four feet of water so yep things things that we getting will we got pretty dangerous out towards that way and. The bank county independents had to become our viewers out there I know we have heard about that so. That looks like you can be a couple of fatalities talent he's down the center he's sort of the state because the flooding you don't they always say they'll run L. Turn around don't drown if you see that water and you think it's in a safe you better be careful that this time of year especially that kind of rain. Yeah you know if we always preached that Monterey even one were expecting. You know not necessarily significant rainfall even you know 12 inches because should even one area get that all the ones you know. There can be there can be some big consequences with that so definitely important and everybody remembers that. Now as far as rain chances today though it looks like things should stay mainly dry I am keeping adjusted very silent 10%. Chance for maybe a quick pop up showers in parts of central Kansas but otherwise just a mainly cloudy skies what's gonna greet you when you take that first step out the door. Temperatures around the lower seventies and then. Eventually warming up in the middle eighties by the afternoon that's what we'll start to see the cloud cover break up a little bit more even getting some sunshine before the day is over. And then a 10% chance for a shower or storm late tonight still looking like a partly cloudy skies though temperatures falling down into the upper sixties. And then tomorrow partly cloudy skies may be seen a couple of leftovers in the morning 20% chance of rain. But then a slightly better chance in the afternoon. In evening we could see is strong to severe storm in Wichita during that time and then right now just seeing an overcast sky sitting at 71 degrees with a north wind. At nine miles Broward dew point of seventy so we know temperatures not really looking or feeling all that bad still pretty humid out there visibility. Just fine but right now it nine miles due to the fact that there's a lot of low clouds out there but not too many travel issues to relieve mansion.
