Overnight showers and thunderstorms brought more than an inch of rain to parts of Wichita, according to the National Weather Service.
How much rain fell “depends on where you were” in the city, said Vanessa Pearce, a meteorologist with the weather service.
Jabara Airport in northeast Wichita reported 1.27 inches of rain, while the official reporting station for the city next to Mid-Continent Airport only logged .36 of an inch.
Rainfall reports will trickle in later this morning, Pearce said, offering a fuller picture of how widespread the welcome rain was.
Storms will move east out of the metro area, allowing skies to clear and temperatures to begin a climb into the mid-80s later today.
