A cold front has moved through Kansas while you were sleeping and promises to bring much cooler temperatures to the state this weekend. Mostly cloudy conditions with increasing northeast winds throughout the day. A few sprinkles are possible across the northern half of the state. After record highs in the 80s yesterday, expect 40s and 50s most locations today.
Rain is forecast to develop tonight with some snow mixed in over the west and north (mainly along the I-70 corridor). There may be some slick roads across the northern half of the state on Sunday morning. Snowfall accumulations (if any) will be less than one inch. Overnight lows in the 30s statewide.
Not a total washout on Sunday, there should be a break in the precipitation during the day Sunday before another area of light rain makes its way across the state Sunday night. Temperatures will be even cooler on Sunday with highs in the 40s east with some 50 degree readings in the west.
Monday through Wednesday expect high temperatures in the 50s and low 60s with more sunshine. Rain chances will increase by Thursday and Friday with temperatures turning much colder for the weekend.
