Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that much warmer weather can be expected for the area through the middle of the week. Dry weather should prevail as flood waters continue to go down.
There should be a few clouds moving through during the night and early morning hours Tuesday. Lows will be down in the 40s and 50s, and should recover to the 80s in the afternoon. South winds will setup around the state.
The warmth will continue through midweek as conditions remain dry. We will begin to see more wind by Wednesday and Thursday, but it's not until late in the week that thunderstorm chances will be back in the Plains.
