Changes will head our way heading into a new work week as an active weather pattern sets in. We are waking up this Monday morning to increasing clouds with chilly temperatures in the 40s. The first half of Monday should be dry but cool with rain chances increasing during the late afternoon into the evening. Highs in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees.

Overnight Monday and through Tuesday more rain is forecast to move in and could bring a few inches of heavy rainfall to the area, which is certainly not needed. Will need to watch area stream and river levels and a Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the area. There is also the threat for strong to severe thunderstorms early Tuesday afternoon as high temperatures get into the upper 60 to near 70 degrees. We are right now under a marginal to slight risk of severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center with large hail and 60-70 mph winds as the main threats. An isolated tornado can't be ruled out. Stay with KQ2 for updates on this forecast.

If you are looking for a nice day, that day will be Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. The nice weather will be short lived as storms return to the forecast late Wednesday through the long Memorial Day holiday weekend.

A storm system moved in Thursday night and Friday morning and brought us a mixture of snow, freezing rain, and rain across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri.
