The winds that were so strong yesterday have finally calmed down thanks to high pressure that has been building in from the south.
This will help switch our winds back to the SW through our day today which will bring us another mild day. Not only will feel more warmth but we’ll also see a lot of sunshine making for a great kick start to the weekend.
Highs will rebound back into the 50s with NW/SW winds at 5-15 mph. A weak cold front does begin to scoot toward the region late tonight and into our Saturday which could spark up a few sprinkles or flurries by the daytime hours across western Kansas.
This will bring cooler conditions back to the Sunflower State with temps falling back into the upper 40s and lower 50s for many of us. We’ll see a drier closeout to the weekend with a mix of clouds and sunshine on the docket but our temps remain a little cooler. Temps rebound just a bit out ahead of stronger system that will impact the KSN Viewing Area by the Christmas Day and beyond.
Monday our highs will surge back up into the 50s but quickly take the tumble back down through the next week. A few sprinkles are possible on Christmas Day but more moisture heads our way by Wednesday and Thursday as very potent low develops across the Plains. This will give us a gloomy and wet Wednesday with some wet snowflakes mixing in across NW and SW Kansas. We could see some lingering rain and snow showers across the state as well on Thursday. Near and below average conditions and blustery winds will be felt on Thursday with highs only in the 30s and 40s.
Have a great weekend!
