Sunny, windy and slightly cooler start to the work week

By  | 

Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says a cold front will bring a chance for rain Sunday night, with slightly cooler weather behind it on Monday.

Our next cold front will move into western Kansas Sunday evening, moving to the east. As it moves into central Kansas, showers and a few storms will form along the front around midnight. These will move to the east through the night, exiting the state to the east by 8 a.m. Rain totals will stay light, mostly under a tenth of an inch.

Lows will drop into the upper 20 to low 30s in western Kansas and the upper 30s to low 40s in central Kansas tonight. It's going to stay windy, with gusts from 35 to 45 mph possible.

Tomorrow, it will get a little cooler behind the front, especially for the western half of the state. Highs will reach the low to mid 50s in western Kansas and the upper 50s to low 60s in central Kansas on Monday. It's going to stay windy, out of the northwest, from 20 to 40 mph. Gusts could reach 50 mph, especially in western Kansas.

With wind still in from the northwest through the middle of the week, it will gradually get cooler, with lows in the mid 20s and highs in the upper 40s on Wednesday.

We'll gradually warm right back up through the end of the week, with lows in the upper 30s and highs in the upper 60s by Friday.

Another chance for rain will arrive next Saturday, ending by Sunday morning.
