Western's Weather Wrap: Wild Winds

The winds are our main story today - and have gusted upwards of 70 mph in Goodland earlier!

That's why we have High Wind Warnings in effect for western Kansas, with Wind Advisories for central Kansas, both in effect through the evening.

We even have a Blowing Dust Advisory in effect for northwest Kansas, where visibility is nearly zero. This means you need to drive very carefully today - and hang on tight to that steering wheel!

And, of course, it's still very dry outside, so that combined with the significant winds means that the fire danger is EXTREME today - use caution!!

We're chilly today, but we'll be turning downright cold tonight with a hard freeze expected. Temperatures will fall to the teens and 20s, so definitely bring in your plants if you've set any of them outside yet!

I'll let you know when warmer weather returns, coming up on KSN News at Noon.
