We’re tracking abundant sunshine across Northeast Kansas today. Winds remain a bit breezy, but they’ll be southwesterly today; a warmer wind (especially compared to yesterday). Daytime temperatures will hang out in the 30s and 40s – a fairly seasonal day. Our average high temperature for this time of the year is 42°. Places south of I-70 and along/east of US-75 should push 45° this afternoon.
We’ll watch the cloud cover increase across our region tomorrow, but despite partly/mostly cloudy skies to end the work and school week – highs will approach 50°. Wall-to-wall sunshine will return for the weekend, with similar high temperatures. However, colder air will quickly move into Northeast Kansas early next week.
Arctic air will spill into our neck of the woods on Monday, as a sharp cold front slices through the Great Plains. A few flurries are possible, as the front moves through – but the main snow front will lie well to our east, along the Mississippi River. No accumulation expected, here. Temperatures will bottom out in the ‘teens’ on Tuesday, but warmer weather will emerge by this time next week. The overall weather pattern remains tranquil and quiet through the mid-February. Prepare yourselves for a lot more sunshine. Stay tuned.
Have a great day!
