Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that the rain will depart from Kansas as cool, fall weather settles in for the upcoming week.
A cold front pushing southeast across Kansas will shove the rain and thunderstorms out, with cooler and drier air arriving. You can expect highs today around 70 degrees with lower humidity. Gusty north winds up to 30 mph will take place across central and western Kansas.
Tonight, the winds will back down with clear skies. Low temperatures will fall into the upper 30s in the northwest with 40s elsewhere. The winds will drop below 15 mph.
Sunny skies return for Monday with highs in the low to mid 70s. The humidity will stay down with a light north breeze.
Much of the week will be quiet with low humidity and sunshine. Lows will fall into the lower 50s with afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s to around 80. Another weak cold front may push through the area Wednesday, but it won't have any rain with it and skies should remain sunny.
