A chill has definitely been in the air today! Temps across the state have been a touch below the norm for this time of year. Once we lose the sun this evening, temps will dip back into the 20s. It will be another frosty start come Tuesday morning.
There is a chance for a brief shower or flurry in southwestern Kansas overnight. It doesn’t look like much and model trends continue to show the dismissal of moisture in this part of the state.
As for Tuesday, it looks similar to today’s weather. Winds will be light and I can see temperatures on a similar trend in the middle 50s. Sunshine will dominate again with a deep blue sky once any clouds depart early in the day.
Temps keep climbing as the NCAA Tournament kicks off in Wichita later this week. We’re back into the 60s & 70s for Wednesday.
Thursday will be the warmest day of the week before a couple of other storm systems travel nearby. These also aren’t promising for much needed rain for the state. As the temps go up, so will the winds and our fire risk. As it stands right now, Barton County has a Burn Ban in effect until further notice. And judging by the extended forecast I’m seeing, it will be in effect for some time.
Join me tonight on KSN News for a look at how much temps will cool by the weekend and who may see a sprinkle or a shower. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
