Clouds will increase tonight in Kansas as low level, Gulf of Mexico moisture heads north into our area. Areas southeast of the Kansas Turnpike could see scattered rain showers on Wednesday, but the activity will remain very light with rainfall totals less than .25".
Our attention all week has been on the Arctic blast that will be arriving on Wednesday. The front will move through northwest Kansas early in the day, and reach southcentral Kansas around 6 or 7 p.m. Behind the front, the wind will turn gusty out of the north, and temperatures will be falling.
Low temperatures Thursday morning will be in the single digits and teens around most of the state, with afternoon highs reaching the low to mid 30s.
Dry and warmer weather should return for the weekend.
