Quiet, but cold start to your week

Meteorologist Jake Dunne says it’s a colder, but otherwise quiet start to the work week. We also get a break from the breeze with much less wind on our Monday. Wake-up temperatures in the teens and 20s will climb into the 40s this afternoon under mostly cloudy skies.

A weak weather maker will move across Oklahoma tonight thus placing Kansas on the northern edge. A light wintry mix or snow is possible, mainly along and south of Highway 54, but accumulations will be light, if any at all.

Tuesday promises to be a carbon copy of today with more clouds than sun, cooler than normal temperatures, and a relatively light breeze.

A more significant weather maker is expected to move through the area on Wednesday. While the northwest part of the state won’t see an impact, a wintry mix is likely across southern and eastern Kansas. Some light accumulation is possible, but this does not look like a major event.
