Any outdoor Halloween activities will be met with afternoon temperatures into the 50s and overnights returning to the 30s and 40s. Moisture returns with this next storm system which will keep some chances for showers and a few flurries mixing in possible across northern and western Kansas into early next week. Snowfall accumulations are not expected.
Northwesterly flow will keep a daily opportunity for rain, and a few flurries across parts of the state, to be possible into the middle of next week. Cooler air settles in with daytime highs into the 40s and 50s and overnights below freezing for some into the 20s and 30s.
