Meteorologist Mark Larson says a dry cold front will sweep though Kansas Tuesday pushing 60 degree temps out of our state and usher in a brief cool-down before warmer weather returns for Thanksgiving.
Look for decreasing clouds Tuesday from north to south along with gusty northerly winds and highs ranging from near 50 around northwest Kansas to near 60 southeast.
The wind will back-off Tuesday night under a mostly clear sky and temps will tumble into the 20s.
Wednesday will be mostly sunny but but chilly with lighter winds and highs in the 40s and lower 50s statewide.
We'll warm back into the 60s Thanksgiving Day under a mostly sunny sky and Friday should be even warmer with highs in the 70s and gusty southerly winds.
The weekend will be dry but cooler and there aren't any major storm systems on our weather horizon, excellent weather for holiday travel.
