Meteorologist Mark Larson says we'll start our week with a couple of warmer days followed by a brief midweek cool-down and a passing chance for rain/snow showers.
Look for gray skies east over eastern Kansas and mostly sunny skies across the west Monday. Highs will top-out in the 50s and 60s with a fresh southerly breeze and an extreme fire danger for parts of the west.
A weak weather-maker will pass through our region Tuesday with temps soaring to around 70 degrees before a cold front plows across the state. The front will bring passing rain or snow shower to prats of Kansas but amounts will be light.
Behind the front Wednesday, expect gusty northerly winds, decreasing clouds and much cooler temps with highs in the 40s and 50s.
We'll warm-up again Thursday through the weekend when gusty southerly winds send highs soaring back into the 70s by Sunday.
