The cold front that made its way through our region Thanksgiving Day has ushered in much colder temps carried on northerly winds.
We can say see ya to the spring-like 70s and hello to more fall-like 40s and 50s Friday under sunny skies.
The rest of our holiday weekend should be mostly sunny, dry and a little warmer. Look for gusty southerly winds Saturday with afternoon highs in the mid to upper-50s. Sunday we should have lighter winds and slightly warmer temps as highs top out in the lower-60s.
Another potent cold front will make it's way through our area Monday bringing more clouds and a few rain showers over south-central and southeastern Kansas. Cool and dry conditions will prevail Tuesday through Thursday with highs in the 40s and 50s.
