Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that after a day with wind gusts of over 60 mph and blizzard conditions, the weather will be calming down very soon. And it will be warming back up.
Look for clearing skies into the night with gusty northwest winds going down just a bit. Low temperatures will be a mix of teens and 20s with wind chills in the single digits. We will be back to sunshine on Tuesday with highs in the 40s and 50s. It will be coldest where there is snow on the ground in the northwest.
Even warmer weather is on the way for Wednesday and Thursday. Much of the state has a chance of being around 60 by Thursday afternoon.
The next system coming to Kansas will arrive Friday evening, providing a chance for some rain showers in southeast Kansas. It's not expected to create any rough travel weather.
