Scattered showers move in Monday

By  | 

Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says rain showers will make for a damp start to the work week, but a warming trend will carry into Valentine's Day.

Tonight, light freezing rain will be possible in western and north central Kansas. Light rain showers will be possible for south central Kansas, but the temps should stay above freezing for that area. Lows will drop into the 20 in northwestern Kansas, the low 30s in the southwest and north central parts of the state, and the mid 30s for south central Kansas.

Tomorrow, scattered rain showers will be possible, off and on, in central Kansas. Highs will reach the upper 30s in the northern half of the state to the mid to upper 40s in southern Kansas. It will be windy in the west, with gusts around 40 to 50 mph possible.

Light showers will continue into Monday evening for central and eastern Kansas. A few flurries could mix in with the rain for the northern areas, but most of us will just have rain. That will all come to an end Monday night.

Sunshine will take over on Tuesday, with highs in the 50s for most. Highs will get right around 60 on Thursday, ahead of our next cold front that will arrive Thursday night. That will bring much cooler weather for the end of the work week.
