Warmer to start the week; storm chances return midweek


*A freeze warning is in effect until 9 am for Republic, Cloud, Washington, Marshall, Nemaha, Clay, Riley, Geary, and Pottawatomie counties.*

With some lingering moisture in the air and morning low temperatures in the low 30s for northwestern areas, those spots could see patchy frost by daybreak. Elsewhere, northeast Kansas will start off the morning in the mid to upper 30s, but wind chills could get as low as the 20s due to north wind at 5 to 15 mph.

Otherwise, some clouds to start early Sunday morning will see that cloud cover decrease as the day progresses. Emerging sunshine will make Sunday slightly warmer, with high temperatures in the 50s and low 60s.

A mostly clear sky is on tap for Sunday night with lows only getting down into the low 40s due to a light south wind at 5 to 10 mph.

Plenty of sunshine and a warm south wind for Monday will mark the return of warmer weather as temperatures max out in the 70s to right around 80°.

A stronger south wind kicks into gear for Tuesday. Even with a gradual increase in the cloud cover throughout the day, more spots will have a chance of cracking into the low 80s.

The 70s and low 80s carry over into Wednesday, but it will go along with the chance for some scattered thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours.

However, there is potential for a set-up to support strong to severe thunderstorms on Wednesday. As of right now, the main threats look to be high winds and large hail. Details on the possibility for severe weather on Wednesday will still need to be fine tuned in the coming days, so make sure to stay up-to-date with your KSNT Storm Track weather team for forecast changes.

Storm chances for Wednesday turn into the chance for just some scattered passing showers on Thursday to go along with high temperatures in the 50s and lower 60s.

Drier weather returns for Friday as more spots get into the 60s, with sunshine and low 70s on tap for Saturday.
