Brief warming trend about to start

By  | 

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that temperatures will be inching up in the coming days, but it may not last all the way to the weekend.

Skies will be clearing out into the night with lows falling to the single digits and teens. The winds will remain light from the north. Sunshine will be around Wednesday afternoon with highs climbing to near 40.

The warmest day will come Thursday with highs in the 50s and 60s. It will be a little windy over central and eastern Kansas, but coming from the south will help to warm things up.

Another front pushes through Friday, dropping temperatures into the weekend. Much colder, Arctic air settles in by Saturday. There will be a chance for some light snow or flurries, but a big storm is not expected.
