We’ll have to endure another bitter morning before temperatures start to warm back up. Thursday morning starts in the teens with wind chills in the single digits. But once the sun comes up a warming trend will kick into gear.
Winds will be lighter but have switched out of the south which will help highs warm into the 40s and 50s. Between partly cloudy skies, temperatures closer to normal, and light winds it will be a nice day to end the month of January.
There could be a little drizzle or light rain in Southeastern Kansas but much of the area will stay dry today.
It’ll be quiet tonight under partly to mostly cloudy skies. And lows will be chilly in the 20s but also closer to normal.
Friday brings another mix of clouds and sun and warmer highs in the 50s. Starting Friday night we’ll start to see some moisture flow into Kansas which could lead to some drizzle or light rain showers. Friday night’s and Saturday’s rain chance will be confined to Central Kansas.
By Saturday night and Sunday more of the area could see some light rain. But we’ve got a better shot at staying dry as an area of low pressure lifts over Kansas. So the weekend is not looking like a washout. And temperatures will continue to warm through the 60s and even 70s in spots.
Cooler air starts to invade Kansas Monday but we’ll really feel the difference by Tuesday when highs fall into the 30s and 40s. There could be some rain/snow showers Tuesday with this push of colder air but chances aren’t looking great. It’s still something to watch though. The bottom drops out Wednesday and Thursday when all of Kansas falls into the 20s and 30s.
