Since the cold, snowy pattern of November, winter has only be noticeable through a periods of days to end 2018 and begin 2019. Normally, significant weather pattern changes can take 4-6 weeks to occur which means there may be a huge shift coming within 10 days to 2 weeks.
After patchy light showers overnight Sunday into Monday, clearing took place as Pacific air continued its dominance. We’ve had 50s and 60s for several days which has put is almost within reach of record daily highs.
The wind was stronger Sunday. It stayed breezy Monday and it could easily be pretty windy today with speeds of 15-30mph from a northwest direction. It will be a little cooler and the stronger wind may make it seem even more so. However, sunshine should be abundant with a decent area of high pressure.
Greater Topeka Tuesday…
Wind: NW 15-25 and gusty
Another weak boundary will go by to make it cooler for Wednesday. The sky temps will be mostly sunny with temps still at or slightly above normal.
A storm system may be close on Thursday and Thursday night, but rain likely stays just south so maybe just more clouds for us. Highs should only get to the mid 40s. Friday may get interesting as we become cloudy with some mix possible by evening.
Lingering snow showers could occur early Saturday with stubborn clouds for much of the day. Sunday should be partly cloudy, breezy and cool with lows in the 25-29 range with highs around 40-44.
