Colder air is on the way

By  | 

Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says it's been warm and windy today, but this unseasonably warm weather won't stick around much longer.

A weak cold front will move through the state, from the northwest, overnight. We won't have a chance for rain with this front, but we will get a little cooler heading into the weekend. Highs will drop into the 40s, which is close to where we should be for this time of the year. Skies will stay sunny to mostly sunny.

By Sunday night, we could see a few showers, ahead of our next front. The best chance for this light rain will be over eastern Kansas, but we can't rule out a few showers making their way into the central part of the state. Some areas could see a light rain/snow mix, but most of us will only see light rain.

The next cold front moves into northwest Kansas Monday morning. The front will move to the southeast, through the entire state by early Tuesday morning. Cold, arctic air will push in behind this front, with highs dropping into the 30s on Tuesday and the 20s on Wednesday. We'll be partly to mostly cloudy through the end of the week.
