We’re tracking some cloud cover already moving into Northeast Kansas this morning. This is a trend that we’ll be tracking throughout the day – with the cloud cover winning out, before a few passing showers pop-up along the cold front this afternoon/evening. We’re still tracking the coldest weather we’ve felt so far this season for the upcoming weekend. Expect daytime temperatures in the 20s and 30s through Sunday, despite mostly sunny skies. However, it won’t even feel THAT warm.
We’ll be battling south winds gusting as high as 30mph today. These same winds will aid highs to reach the middle 50s in most areas by this afternoon, despite the thicker cloud cover. But, this morning, breezy winds are enough to send wind chills into the 20s – just a tease of what’s to come. Once the front passes through this evening, backing winds will gust up to 40mph at times. These chilly winds will be howling out of the north/west – batten down the hatches. Wind chills will be in the teens and 20s throughout a large chunk of the weekend. Bundle up!
The blustery weather will be short-lived, as we warm things up considerably for Monday and Tuesday. Bountiful blue skies will send highs into the middle and upper 50s leading up to Thanksgiving – it WILL feel that mild, as we shake these November gales by Monday too. The luck stops there, sadly. Turkey Day looks rather rainy – with a chilly rain falling through Black Friday. There’s obviously still a lot of time between then and now, and things can change. We’ll continue to track that holiday weather-maker, as it gets closer – just for you turkey lovers and crazy deal stealing shoppers. Stay tuned!
Have a great day!
