Expect a big temperature tumble later this week

Weather

​Last Friday became the beautiful day that we thought it would…after the incredibly dense fog went away. Saturday was pretty early, then it became hazy and warmer with mid to upper 70s. Late afternoon thunderstorms were in the forecast, and we certainly had some brief heavy rain, lightning and nickel sized hail.

Sunday started with clouds and a stronger breeze, then sunshine became more abundant by midday. Temps remained warm, and we have a shot to see our first 80 of the season on Monday.

Today will give us a sunshine from the start. Many will get a huge case of spring fever with the wish for every day in April and May to be like this!

Greater Topeka Monday…
​Highs: 78-82
​Wind: W/SW 10-15

We start getting more clouds and stronger breezes through midweek, but temps may still reach 80 or higher. A strong system brings late winter weather to states north of us by Thursday and temps will be sharply cooler across Northeast Kansas. High temperatures could be 30-35 degrees colder over just a 24 hour period as air from Canada gets pulled south. Many communities will have lows at or just below freezing, and highs might stay in the mid to upper 40s. Precipitation may stay just north through Thursday and Friday, but patchy mix could also happen…especially across the northern counties.

Clouds linger into the weekend and temperatures remain on the chilly side. Sprinkles may hit by early Saturday afternoon and showers likely develop by evening. Areas of rain could continue into early Sunday before sunshine returns and another warm-up ensues.
