Isolated storms expected tonight

June 16, 2004


A few storms may pop up in the Lawrence area tonight, but most of the heavier rainfall will bypass the city, says Matt Sayers, 6News meteorologist.

"Most of the activity is off to the east for the evening. We might see a few isolated storms pop up, mainly to the north," Sayers said. He put the chance of storms at 30 percent for the Lawrence area.

"We're not seeing as much as was expected," he said.

The best chances of rain for the Lawrence area are overnight and around rush hour on Thursday morning.

Although Sayers is expecting most of the rainfall to fall to the north, the National Weather Service still has Douglas, Franklin, Jefferson and Shawnee counties included in its flood watch area through Thursday afternoon.

The National Weather Service warns motorists to be especially cautious at night about flooding because it's difficult to see rising waters.

Thursday morning's low will be 68. Thursday's high is expected to be 81.
