KRBC AM Forecast: Monday, August 7, 2017

Rain showers are may start as early as Wednesday afternoon as a weather system begins moving into the region from the northwest, according to the National Weather Service in Tulsa.

Today's predicted high is several degrees lower than Topeka's average high temperature for August 11, which is 89 degrees. What once looked like a few rounds of widespread, heavy rain - now looks like pretty isolated rain chances (at best).

Saturday: Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 82.

Humidity will consistently hit early morning highs in the mid to high 90s, and reach afternoon lows in the mid 60s to low 70s. Light and variable wind becoming east 5 to 8 miles per hour in the afternoon. Low: 73. High: 96. Partly sunny, with a high near 87.

MONDAY: There will be a 50 percent chance of rain.

While most of the "day" will be dry, we can't rule out some late day showers (especially across far western CT). We will have partly cloudy skies with only a 20% chance for rain for Friday and Saturday.

If you're planning on heading to the beach this weekend, some patchy fog is possible in the mornings.

Gusty winds and hail are possible with the stronger storms south and east of Billings.

The chance for thunderstorms remains on Saturday, with more sunshine expected Sunday. And for what it's worth, longer range computer models try to bring more rain chances our direction by next Wednesday and Thursday too. Expect scattered storms again in the forecast with highs in the upper 80s. Partly cloudy, with a low around 61.

Sun: High: 84 Mostly cloudy. The high will be 85, after a morning low of 71. Partly sunny, with a high near 83.
