We’re tracking a more mild start with temps in the 40s and 50s. Despite having temps ‘above freezing’ – this afternoon will be much cooler than yesterday was. Highs will struggle to reach 60° with breezy north winds around today. A dry cold front has passed through Northeast Kansas, shifting our winds to a cooler direction – prepping us for the coldest day of the week…tomorrow. Still expect wall-to-wall sunshine but you’ll need that ‘fall jacket’ today, especially if you’ll be outdoors for any of the Veterans Day ceremonies.
Widespread frost will glaze over our backyards tonight. Lows will dip into the upper 20s for a large chunk of Northeast Kansas. Brrrr! Most places will receive their first ‘hard freeze’ of the season. This isn’t always a bad thing. Sick of bugs/pests like oak mites? Well, hard freezes will actually kill a lot of them. The seasons are changing and frost is the first sign of that. Highs will have a hard time reaching the upper 50s tomorrow afternoon. Although – that’s fairly seasonal weather. In fact, our average high temperature for this time of the year is 58°. But if you’re not ready for consistently cooler weather just yet…don’t panic. Highs will climb into the middle 60s by Sunday and then gradually warm into the lower 70s by the middle of next week. Yes, that would put us a mere week away from Turkey Day. Stay tuned.
