Wednesday's chance of showers and thunderstorms is 50 percent. Storms will continue into the plains tonight where additional heavy rains are possible through midnight, especially towards the Nebraska/Kansas border.

Scattered showers and storms continue every day through Wednesday. Bouts of heavy rain on saturated ground may cause lowland and poor-drainage flooding issues, so please stay alert and remember: never drive through water-covered roads!

We have been in a weather setup that is favorable for showers and storms for a couple of days now, and the rain totals have piled up in some areas.

Sunday's forecast calls for partly sunny skies with a high of 75 and a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon. Temperatures once again will be in the low 80s and we will still be windy.

Some areas of the state are expected to push near 90 Friday, but low temperatures Friday night will be cooler, in the high 60s or low 70s.
