A weak cold front will move across Kansas today, with little effect on our sensible weather. Winds will shift from the south to the north as the front passes, however temperatures will remain on the warm side of normal for late October. Highs will reach the 70s to near 80 this afternoon. Quiet tonight with mostly clear skies and lows in the upper 30s in northwest Kansas, to near 50 in the southeast.
Plenty of sunshine for Monday with temperatures remaining mild for this time of year. Highs in the 70s statewide, with the warmest temperatures in the south.
Another cold front will approach Kansas on Tuesday. This system will draw moisture northward from Texas Monday night into Tuesday bringing our best chances of rain in the past several days. This cold front is strong enough, that we may even see a few storms. We are not expecting severe weather, however a few strong storms are possible during the evening Tuesday. The areas having the best chances of measurable precipitation will be Central and eastern Kansas. Most of the showers and storms will occur during the evening and overnight and should move out by early morning Wednesday. Precipitation amounts will generally be less than 0.50" with the higher amounts across northeast Kansas.
In the wake of this weather system, expect sunny and dry weather through the end of the week into next weekend with temperatures still above normal. Highs will be in the 70s to near 80, while overnight lows will drop into the 40s and 50s.
