The Arctic cold front has moved through Kansas. Cold air will rush into the area with gusty north winds. Precipitation (snow flurries and sprinkles) is limited, but don't be surprised if you see a few flurries throughout the day into the early evening. High temperatures have already occurred, and temperatures will remain steady or fall through the afternoon hours. Afternoon temperatures will be in the 20s and 30s statewide. Wind chills will be in teens and single digits.
Flurries and clouds will begin to clear out tonight, and with clearing skies and diminishing wind, temperatures will plummet into the single digits and teens by Monday morning. Coldest air Kansas has seen this season. Don't forget the gloves and jacket, as you head out the door to work and school on Monday.
Sunshine and less wind for Monday, however still pretty cold with highs in the middle and upper 30s by afternoon.
Dry weather conditions will persist through most of the week. Our next chance of moisture comes on Friday.
