There's so few showers around out there I don't think the wet weather will be too much of the trouble today is it's really brought in those cooler temperatures you're not gonna feel it just yet we've been starting out our morning some wood how we have the past few mornings temperature wise but. I guarantee you're gonna feel by the afternoon. Yeah this I was the of the same thing yeah over the temperature right now around seventy semi do agree yeah it's about what has been. But does at this afternoon if it stays close to eighty that's going to be really nice. Yes yes not really warming up all that much with the fact that that wet weather stupid can be lingering around the area and also all the clouds that we're gonna have so temperatures gonna be warming very slowly. Something that we'll all be able to take advantage. Do you see anything about this damage up and Ellis county edited sound like images straight line wind wasn't a tornado weren't you know I know that in the tornado risk was very very low we were kind of stressing that all day even the day before yesterday. So yeah there was a lot of wind damage there was also a lot of hail reports mainly around the entire area anywhere between. Nickel to. Half dollar sized hail when. But not here in just the south central Kansas area. No no not not really a whole lot going on in south central Kansas because by the time those storms reached as they were. They really kind of no doubt so to say they weren't strong they weren't packing as much of a punch so we religious got the showers and thunder. How much does and you know watch storms over the years how much is to have that in the fact that OK this sums gunned down they heat sources pretty much taken out of this. And at that makes the brother kind of called that little bit. Yet that that too but we also have those and CS is those strong thunderstorm complexes that we see. Kind of gather at night so that's not always the case it usually is yes because that's where they get their energy from the get their energy from that daytime heating. As soon as the daytime heating is gone lender source art fizzle out aren't. Give us a full forecast your answer. OK you know what today you only getting up to eighty degree. I tried to slow down when I said that because I don't believe it myself but it gets gonna feel very very nice today. On temperature wise going into the evening slowly falling through the seventies eventually everybody phone down into the sixties. What whether those still in the picture we are going to have that slight chance of rain continuing through today. But by the time we get to the evening hours. I think that what whether we'll start to low fizzle out a little bit more trending drier. That rain chance not looking as good but we are going to have mainly cloudy skies all day today. And then possibly turning partly cloudy tonight. But I am expecting a more clouds into tomorrow but it still be feeling pretty nice it's a little bit warmer closer to the middle eighties around 8586. Degrees. So I'm definitely nothing like what we experienced last week you know it's gonna be a little bit warmer and I wins should be fairly light as well may be an occasional breeze out there okay so what are we are right now them. Right now overcast skies 74 degrees and the skies are overcast if you look up if you're about and outside. Maybe seeing a little bit of sunlight right on the horizon right west wind at eight miles per hour dew point of seventy so does feel pretty humid out there you got to remember we did have some rain that rolled through its evaporating the air a little bit more Maurice but.
