Warm today, windy and seasonal tomorrow. Next chance for moisture is early next week.
While not in record-setting territory, it’ll be warm by January standards with 60’s and a few 70’s statewide. A cold front sweeps across the state in the overnight hours, with very strong northwest wind on tap for both Thursday and Friday. High Wind Watches and Warnings are in effect for both days. Wind gusts could reach 70mph in central Kansas, particularly in the Hays, Great Bend, and Kinsley triangle.
Long range models are in good agreement on a dry and cool weather pattern for Kansas over the weekend. By Monday, a stronger system will be approaching the 4-corners region. That may pull enough Gulf moisture in ahead of the system for a chance at measurable precipitation early next week.
