Heavy rain forecast for Wichita area today

Rain aplenty is in the forecast for the Wichita area, prompting a flood watch through Thursday morning for most of southeast Kansas – including the Wichita metropolitan area.

As much as an inch of rain is expected to fall in central Kansas by 9 a.m., and those showers are working their way east. Some of the showers will produce heavy rainfall, forecasters say.

Highs in the Wichita area should reach the mid-80s today, with overnight lows bottoming out at about 70. Highs on Thursday should again reach the low 80s, with more rain in the forecast.
