More springlike, at least for now

By  | 

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that springlike temperatures will be in Kansas for the next couple of days, but then it's back to winter as much colder air dives south into the weekend.

Skies will be mostly clear during the night with lows in the 20s. South winds will push temperatures back above 60 for most of the state for Wednesday afternoon. Wind gusts of 30 mph will be possible in central and eastern Kansas.

The next cold front will enter the state on Thursday, but most of the area will still have 50s and 60s in the afternoon. Watch for the winds to turn to the north by Thursday evening as colder air begins invading the region. Highs by the end of the week will fall back below freezing with a chance for some light snow.
