Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that we should expect a cool weekend for most of Kansas and for much of the state, it will be dry.
A big high pressure system will help to clear the skies and calm the winds down as we head into the night. Low temperatures will fall into the teens around most of the state.
Look for sunshine on Saturday with a light breeze turning back to the south. Highs will be in the 45-50 degree range, which is a bit cooler than normal for February.
A fast moving storm system coming through Saturday night/early Sunday will help to increase the clouds. The best chance for moisture will be in southeast Kansas, while the rest of us won't see anything at all. Highs will be around 50 on Sunday with shifting winds back to the north.
Most of next week will see high temperatures near normal, which is just above 50 degrees heading into early March.
