Late night showers bring a bit of rain relief for Wichita area

Those rumbles late Monday night and early Tuesday brought light showers to the Wichita metropolitan area.

Officially, .18 of an inch fell in Wichita at the recording station next to Mid-Continent Airport. But heavier amounts fell north of there, National Weather Service meteorologist Vanessa Pearce said, including more than a quarter of an inch in Newton.

No rain is expected today, however – just more heat and high winds.
