The nicest pair of days since mid-December will greet most of Kansas to start this week, and it could not come at a better time, right after a two-week stay in the deep freeze.
We’ll see lots of sunshine today, with temperatures ranging from the upper 50s to mid 60s, with west winds from 8-16 mph. The fire danger will be low today, thanks to the snow cover on the ground. Expect to see clear skies tonight, with temperatures ranging through the 30s. Tuesday will be another nice day, with temperatures from the lower to upper 60s. Some 70+ degree readings are possible, especially in parts of Central Kansas.
A weak cold front will move through the state Tuesday night, but it will be dry, and the only thing you’ll notice is a period of gusty winds from the northwest. Temps Wednesday will be cooler, with temps in the mid 40s.
The next chance for precip comes Thursday, with some light snow possible in far Western Kansas as a shortwave moves south of Kansas.
The window for unsettled weather looks to open next weekend and continue into the first week of March. We’ll have more details on that as we get closer.
