Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says the sunshine is here to stay for the rest of the week.
A cold front moved through Kansas over the weekend. Behind that front, cooler air and high pressure is building in. That high pressure will keep skies clear through the end of the week.
It will be chilly tonight, with lows back into the upper 40s to low 50s. We'll have mostly clear skies with wind out of the southwest around 5-10 mph.
By Tuesday afternoon, as that high pressure takes over, we'll get a little warmer. Highs will reach the lower 80s, which is just a few degrees warmer than average for this time of the year.
A weak cold front will push into Kansas from the northeast on Wednesday. This front won't bring us a chance for showers, but it will cool us back into the upper 70s.
We'll stay mostly sunny through the upcoming weekend.
