A quiet night is ahead with lows in the teens thanks to clear to mostly clear skies.
On Sunday, we'll see increasing high clouds, especially for western Kansas. More wind will be around too as temperatures climb to the 30s in the west and 40s again east.
Big changes are ahead for Sunday night and Monday as a winter storm takes aim on Kansas. We'll see a light wintry mix transition to some light to moderate snow starting early Monday. There are still some question marks on the timing and track of the system but as it stands, a band of moderate accumulation is possible over parts of central, south central and eastern Kansas. 2-4 inches of accumulation is possible along and north of Wichita, with lighter amounts in far southern and western Kansas. In any event, some travel impacts will be felt for the New Year's holiday.
Temperatures will remain cold through the middle of next week.
