We’re tracking the return of chilly north breezes to Northeast Kansas today. Winds will be gusting as high as 30mph at times. Typically winds relax a bit, when the sun goes down – well, not this evening. In fact, winds will become stronger overnight with gusts up to 40mph possible through Wednesday. Sky conditions will remain cloudy today as this cloud-maker passes through our neck of the woods. Save for a few light and isolated rain/snow showers earlier, the skies stay dry today. Despite the cloud cover overhead, high temperatures will rebound into the upper 40s and lower 50s; we keep the seasonably mild weather around today. However, cooler weather will be returning soon.
Speaking of – we’re tracking daytime temperatures in the 30s and 40s on Wednesday and Thursday. The cooler weather will be brought in behind this passing front. The thick cloud cover will also exit our region throughout the day tomorrow. Expect gradual clearing with some afternoon sunshine on Wednesday. Warmer weather will return as early as Friday, as high temperatures soar into the 50s. But, the warmest day of the week should be Saturday. We’re tracking highs in the middle/upper 60s to start the upcoming weekend with wall-to-wall sunshine.
Our next best chance for rain will wait until Sunday. This precipitation chance still looks rather meager, but we’ll track it as the weekend gets closer. Unsurprisingly, the possible late weekend showers will be caused from a slicing cold front. Temperatures will certainly be cooler as we start the first week of March. Stay tuned.
Have a great day!
