A line of thunderstorms moving through the area on Monday night had more bark than bite.

The storms, which were expected to produce two hours of heavy rain and wind gusts of up to 35 mph, dropped .37 inches of rain on Lawrence by 11:30 p.m., said National Weather Service meteorologist Kyle Weisser.

Topeka received .12 inches, he said.

There were no reports of storm-related traffic problems, police and sheriff's officers said.

Light rain was expected to continue across the region for much of the night, Weisser said.
