Meteorologist Dean Jones says mild and sunny weather will dominate the next 7 days.
A great weekend across Kansas with sunshine, mild temperatures and light winds. Perfect weather for Christmas shopping. After a cold start to the morning, temperatures will quickly jump into the 40s, with most areas in the middle and upper 50s by afternoon, which is about 10-15 degrees above normal for mid December. Clear to partly cloudy skies tonight with lows dropping into the 20s by early morning. A weak cold front moves through on Sunday, however this weather system will just shift the winds to the north and spread a few clouds across the state.
In the week ahead, dry and mild weather will continue. Several weak weather systems are expected to move across the state, but moisture is extremely limited and any precipitation chances remain low. A disturbance on Tuesday will spread clouds across Kansas, but the sun returns towards the end of the week. Temperatures are expected to remain above normal through Friday with highs in the 50s.
