Temperatures will remain on the mild side to get our new work and school week started so look for the rest of the snow to melt over central and northern Kansas very soon.
Highs Monday will depend on whether or not you have snow on the ground in your neighborhood and how fast clouds thin-out overhead. Afternoon temps will top out in the lower 50s where there's no snow cover but only end up in the low to mid 40s where there's snow to melt. South winds will be gusty most of the day.
We'll see highs in the 40s and 50s again Tuesday but winds will not be quite as strong under a mostly sunny sky.
A storm system is expected to approach our area late Wednesday into early Thursday bringing clouds back to Kanas and a chance for rain showers.
