Meteorologist Jake Dunne says a cold front moved across the state while you were sleeping and while today won’t be cold, it will be cooler.

Most of Kansas will be 5 to 10 degrees lower on the thermometer than Wednesday placing us in the middle 50s to lower 60s this afternoon.

A brisk north breeze today will make it feel even cooler and it will also raise the risk of wild fires across central and eastern Kansas. Winds will level-off on Friday before they get even stronger this weekend.

The wind direction will be from the south and that means a warm weekend for the Sunflower State.

Our next weather maker has slowed down and won’t arrive until Sunday night. Widespread light to moderate rain is a safe bet for most of Kansas, however the southwest part of the state should only see a few rain showers. As the rain departs on Monday, it will be replaced by cooler conditions with highs generally in the 50s.
