Cold weather on the way for Kansas this weekend. A strong cold front will push through the state tonight, and temperatures will be dipping below normal for a change.
Today weather conditions will be "nice" and temperatures will be near normal for early December, clouds will be on the increase throughout the day, but dry weather should continue. Afternoon highs are expected to be in the upper 40s and low 50s over much of the state with a return to south winds in the afternoon.
The cold front will arrive tonight, and during the predawn hours on Sunday. As the front moves through, north winds will increase and be gusty. Tonight across central and eastern Kansas a few sprinkles or light showers are possible, while western Kansas may have a mixture of sprinkles and flurries.
Sunday looks like a raw weather day across the entire state. Cloudy skies, with temperatures falling through the afternoon. Flurries will continue through the afternoon and early evening across central and eastern Kansas, with decreasing clouds in the northwest. Snow accumulation is not expected in any part of Kansas. Wind chills will be in the teens and 20s.
