It should not be as cold overnight with lows in the 20s for most of the state. South winds will continue overnight with wind chills likely dropping into the teens with just a few higher level clouds moving through.
Thursday should be mild again with a south breeze and afternoon highs that will end up between 55-60 for much of central and northwest Kansas. Temperatures could reach the low 60s for southwest Kansas.
Mild weather weather continues on Friday as a storm approaches from the southwest US. Clouds will take over during the day and rain showers should develop by Friday evening. They will move from west to east, but amounts will be light (generally .25" or less). Much of the precipitation will fall as rain, with very little snow expected in the area.
