We’re tracking less active weather over the next several days. In fact, cooler air will prevail as skies clear across the area today. Expect high temperatures around 60° by this afternoon – that’s some 15°+ cooler than yesterday. Chilly north breezes will gust upwards of 25mph today – making things FEEL even more chilly. You’ll want to grab that jacket when you’re out and about today! For some context, our average high temperature for this time of the year is 72° – temps will be 10°+ below that benchmark.
The bottom falls out tomorrow morning. We’re tracking temperatures in the 30s to start the holiday weekend. However, frost is NOT expected – temps stay above 32° on Saturday morning. Expect tons of sunshine this weekend too. Highs will slowly warm into next week, as we enter a prolonged stretch of quiet weather. Upper 60s seem fitting on Saturday, lower 70s on Sunday and middle 70s by Columbus Day (Monday). Speaking of – there is a SLIGHT chance for a passing shower on the holiday itself. As of right now, Monday’s rain chances look very meager. We’ll continue to track the potential for a few showers early next week in the coming days.
We’re tracking a better chance for scattered showers by the middle of next week. Recent computer models suggest some disorganized showers will move through E. Kansas next Wednesday. Otherwise, expect ‘sunny and 75’ for most of next week. Our next BEST chance for rain will hold off until late next week with more widespread rain likely into the weekend of October 15th. Stay tuned.
