A rainy Wednesday in the Wichita area

Waves of rain and rumbles of thunder can be expected throughout the day today as more storms move through the Wichita area.

Given the heavy rain that fell over most of southcentral Kansas last weekend, soils remain saturated - meaning street flooding is possible during and just after rainy spells, forecasters warn.

These storms are moving much faster than the nearly stationary front that pounded the region Sunday and Monday, forecasters said. As a result, less than an inch of rain is expected in most parts of the Wichita today.

Highs should reach the upper 70s today, with south winds surging from the teens to nearly 30 miles an hour.

Chances of rain will persist through Sunday, forecasters warn.
