Another unseasonably "warm" day on tap across Kansas with plenty of sunshine. Temperatures will max out in the upper 50s and low 60s, which is some 15-20 degrees above normal for January. Colder tonight into Sunday, before the much colder air arrives behind a cold front on Sunday. Lows tonight in the 20s. Temperatures on Sunday will be in the 40s and lower 50s.
Monday - Martin Luther King Jr. Day- will be the coldest day of the upcoming week as a warming trend is expected to commence Tuesday and continue through midweek. A weak weather system will move in on Thursday and Friday, however it appears this system will be dry. Temperatures return to "normal" (highs in the 40s) for next weekend.
