Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that although a cold front will be coming into Kansas on Wednesday, much of the state will have more mild weather. Highs will continue to be above normal.
In the overnight hours, skies will be partly cloudy with lows staying above freezing. The wind starts to pick up again across western Kansas.
A little breezy for Wednesday and by the afternoon, most of the state will see the winds turning back to the north. Temperatures will start falling in the afternoon across northern Kansas, but many of us will still get a day with 50 and 60 degree weather.
Colder weather takes over for Thursday with highs in the 30s and 40s. We won't have to worry about any icy weather until Friday night and over the weekend. Ice accumulations are expected and it's realistic to expect there could be possible power outages. There won't be any snow chances until Sunday night or Monday in far western Kansas. Travel this weekend could be rather difficult.
