Colder to close out the work week

What We’re Tracking:

  • Temperatures tumble tonight
  • Colder and breezy Thursday
  • Chilly sunshine Friday

By sunset, there could be some sprinkles or light rain showers before temperatures drop dramatically throughout the night.

Thursday may start with light mix or flurries, but much of that will try to develop between midnight and 5am. Expect much colder air Thursday with highs of 35-40 degrees. That will be a 20-25 degree drop from the previous day.

Looking longer term, a nicearea of high pressure builds Friday and Saturday. Friday will remain verychilly with highs in the 40s, but expect a nice pop in temps to start theweekend.

Sunshine, light breezes andslightly warmer temperatures will be around us Saturday. Numbers should reachto the upper 50s or near 60. That sounds great for this late in the season.

Another cold front sweeps across northeast Kansas by early Sunday. This will make for much colder air into Veterans Day with highs in the 30s. It looks dry the passage of this boundary so at least we won’t have any travel problems from ice or snow but expect a roller coaster of a ride with temperatures over the next 6-7 days.
