More showers and thunderstorms today for Wichita area

It is shaping up to be another wet day in the Wichita metropolitan area, forecasters say.

Scattered showers are possible during the day, and they’ll become more numerous this evening. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall on areas still saturated from last weekend’s downpours.

Accordingly, a flash flood watch has been posted for 22 counties in central and southern Kansas - including the Wichita metropolitan area - through Friday morning.

Highs today should reach the low 70s, with light southerly winds.

Chances for rain should persist into Friday.
