Although colder weather came along with it, northeast Kansas residents received the first significant rainfall in a number of weeks starting Saturday afternoon.

The rain had a chance to change to snow tonight, when low temperatures were forecast near freezing, according to John Woynick, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Topeka.

By 6 p.m. Saturday, the National Weather Service in Topeka said most of northeast Kansas had received more than an inch of rain, and another half inch was expected before morning. A total of 1.24 inches had fallen in Topeka at 6 p.m., Woynick said.

By 10 p.m. Saturday, a total of 1.75 inches of rain had fallen in Lecompton, said Nancy Pollard, a weather spotter in the city. She said the rain started falling in Lecompton about 4 p.m.

The weather service called for an 80 percent chance of rain today and a 50 percent chance of rain or snow tonight. North and northeast winds of 15 to 25 mph were expected today with a high temperature between 40 and 45 degrees.

Tonight's low is expected to be between 30 and 35 degrees.
