Windy weather sticks around through mid-week

By  | 

Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says this windy weather will stick around for a while, but a cold front will bring a chance for rain and some cooler weather in the next few days.

Tonight, lows will stay warm for this time of the year, mostly in the 40s and 50s. Clouds will increase tonight, becoming mostly cloudy. Wind will be in from the south, around 20-25 mph, with gusts up to 35 mph.

The clouds will clear in western Kansas on Sunday, with highs in the mid to upper 70s for that area. It will be partly to mostly cloudy in central Kansas, with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Wind will still be in from the south, around 20-25 mph, with gusts over 40 mph possible.

Our next cold front will move into western Kansas Sunday evening, moving to the east, into Central Kansas Sunday night. As the front moves in, showers and a few storms will be possible, mainly after midnight through around 6 a.m. Monday. The best chances for rain will be east of Hays and Dodge City, mainly over central and eastern Kansas.

It will get cooler behind that front on Monday, with highs dropping into the 50s. The wind won't let up though, with gusts over 40 mph possible through mid-week.
