Coming off one of the driest Aprils ever, the first week of May brings the promise of much needed rain.
According to the National Weather Service, it certainly was a dry April for most across the region. Highlights include:
- Salina tallied its 6th driest April on record, and the driest since 1982.
- Russell tallied its 2nd driest April. The driest was 1989.
- Wichita tallied its 13th driest April, and the driest since 2014.
The agency says a slow moving weather system will bring widespread rainfall to the region for Wednesday and Thursday.
Much warmer temperatures will return to Kansas for end of the week into the weekend.
