Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a cold night is on the way for Kansas, but very quickly, temperatures get turned around heading into the Thanksgiving holiday.
Overnight temperatures will fall into the teens and 20s with diminishing winds and mainly clear skies.
Wednesday should mainly be sunny with just a few high clouds. Afternoon highs will be near 50 in eastern Kansas, but should be closer to 70 in the far west. The winds will turn back to the south, but will be much lighter than they have been throughout the week.
More sunshine is on the way for Thanksgiving as high temperatures warm up well into the 60s. And it will be even warmer on Friday with near record warmth and highs that will likely top 70.
