Gusty winds will start to turn lighter after sundown. Winds will still be breezy through the early evening but they won’t be as strong as what we experienced all day. Skies will stay clear too.
Despite the winds it was a nice day temperature-wise with highs in the 40s and 50s under blue skies. We’ll cool down into the 20s overnight to make for a chilly start to Friday.
But another nice rebound will follow as afternoon highs warm into the 50s under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Winter starts at 4:23pm (CST) on Friday and it won’t look or feel like it across Kansas.
Temperatures turn cooler over the weekend into the 40s and low 50s. Weekend weather shouldn’t get too bumpy though. There’s going to be a small chance of a rain/snow shower in Western Kansas Saturday and Saturday night. The rest of Kansas will just experience clouds and sunshine.
Christmas Eve will be cool and dry but our weather will start to turn more active on Christmas when there will be a chance for some rain showers.
Rain looks more likely Tuesday night and Wednesday with some snow possibly mixing in up in Northwestern Kansas. This will be a strong storm system that will also turn winds gusty again early to mid week.
With the exception of a lingering flurry in Northern Kansas we should dry back out by Thursday. There’s still time for this forecast to change so we encourage you to check back with us, especially if you’ll be traveling.
