You may be waking up to fog this morning, ahead of what will turn out as another “ponytail day”. Expect Wednesday to be humid and wet, although some of us may see more rain than others. Meteorologist Brian Alworth says showers will be spotty through the Heartland, much like yesterday, when rain totals from one corner to the next ranged from 0-to-5 inches. Wherever you live, you’ll want to keep your rain gear handy, just in case. And follow where the showers pop up on the KFVS12 Weather App or by checking out the First Alert Weather Interactive Radar.
