Gusty winds are on the way Monday too and with very low humidity, the fire danger will be very high for much of the state. Afternoon highs will range from 55-60.
Temperatures should be a bit warmer Tuesday under a mostly sunny sky with lighter winds and afternoon highs close to 60.
Our next best bet to get wet will arrive the second half of the week as a storm system moves in from the Rockies.
Rain is likely but some snow could also return to Kansas by Thursday night as colder air gets drawn into the system as it slides by to our south by week's end.
