Gusty wind today, and still breezy Tuesday, before we get warmer midweek temps


Temperatures will tumble from Wednesday afternoon to Thursday

Rain hit most areas Friday night as expected, and Saturday became sunny and warm with highs near 70. Sunday started with fog, but it became a mostly sunny to partly cloudy day with evening rain.

Today should be sunny early, but by midday we should look for increasing clouds from the north to make it partly cloudy to variably cloudy. Breezes will rapidly increase and wind will be problematic throughout the afternoon with strong, gusty conditions. Temperatures will be cooler that what we had over the weekend.

Greater Topeka Monday
Highs: 59-62
Wind: W/NW 20-35

Tuesday will be a sunny and pleasant day with mid 60s and sunshine. Moisture content will return through the midweek period, and that will lead to a bigger chance of showers by Wednesday night and Thursday.

Temperatures will drop drastically with the passage of a strong cold front. Thursday should be very chilly with highs only in the mid to upper 40s. Numbers will slowly increase Friday and Saturday. Saturday may be mostly cloudy with occasional rain so anticipate some impact to outdoor events and activities.

Now that we’re getting deeper into October, it’s time to start expecting much colder air from time to time. We must start our discussion about when the first measurable snowfall will hit.
