Scattered showers and t’storms visited late Saturday, and now it seems that the next chance of precipitation might be Wednesday evening.
After warming nicely over the weekend, most areas of northeast Kansas enjoyed the first 80-degree afternoon of this early spring season. Sunshine was abundant and it was truly a gorgeous day for so many to be out and about.
Temps remain warm today with slightly stronger breezes. Partly cloudy conditions may occur from time to time. We still await the massive change when colder air gets pulled into the Central Plains in 48 hours or so.
Greater Topeka Tuesday…
Wind: SE 10-20
We start getting more clouds with strong and gusty wind 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. High temperatures could be 30-35 degrees colder from Wednesday to Thursday. 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, although there could be patchy mix or brief wet snow.
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. Weather looks pleasant for Monday and Tuesday of next week.
