Early Tuesday a few flurries flew across northern Kansas but were all but gone by sunrise.
Temperatures should be a bit warmer Tuesday afternoon under a mostly sunny sky with lighter winds and afternoon highs close to 60 before much colder weather arrives later this week. Get out and enjoy while you can as Tuesday might be the pick weather day of the week.
Another weak cold front will slide into our area Tuesday but it will not bring ant rain or snow. The front will usher in cooler afternoon highs Wednesday as temps top out in the low to mid-50s.
Another storm system is headed for the central US Thursday bringing rain to our state and even some light snow Thursday night into Friday for central and northern Kansas. The weather-maker will also bring us much colder air along with another chance for light snow Saturday.
We can expect chilly afternoon highs to tumble, then stay, in the low to mid-40s, Thursday through the weekend. Get set to shiver again.
