Rain returns to Lawrence


It's almost a textbook fall system for us. Snow is falling in the northern Rockies and rain is pouring on central Kansas. A strong cold front is sliding across Kansas for your Monday, and will make a big difference when you step outside. The remnants of [Hurricane Norbert][1] have worked their way across the southern United States and brought with it plenty of moisture for Eastern Kansas. The combination of moisture and the next cold front will bring us a more prolonged period of rain. Once this front moves through and the north breeze takes over, you can expect your Monday afternoon temperatures to slide into the middle to low 60's with periodic rain showers that will continue through Wednesday.It is coming at a good time. The month of October has only brought us short bursts of rain. We are a little over an inch down for rainfall for the month, with a surplus for the year of 1.85 inches. The forecast is calling for anywhere from a quarter of an inch to three-quarters of an inch of rain for Monday with another three-quarters possible on Tuesday. Wednesday still has the possibility of rain early in the day, although our chance of rain will drop dramatically toward the afternoon.
