The Hays area received another dose of much-needed rainfall Tuesday — just more than a quarter of an inch — with more expected into early Friday morning.

The National Weather Service in Dodge City said Wednesday morning's light showers will give way to clear skies as the day progresses, but there is an 80 percent chance of showers or thunderstorms in the area after 10 p.m. Between a half and three-quarters of an inch is possible.

While severe weather in not expected, the front could bring dangerous lightning and brief torrential downpours.

The chance for precipitation continues Thursday, with a 50 percent to 60 percent chance of showers or thunderstorms and  up to another half-inch of rain.

The mercury will nosedive Thursday, as well. After a high of 101 Tuesday, Thursday's high is only expected to reach the mid-50s.
