TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – Pack up today! It will be similar to yesterday, even a few degrees cooler for different areas. The good news is that the winds won’t be as strong as yesterday, but still enough to keep wind chills in the single digits down to low teens for most of the day. If you’re not a fan of cold weather, temperatures drop back to near seasonal temperatures by mid-week.
Take the initiative:
A quiet week with dry conditions is expected over the next 8 days. There are some weak cold fronts rolling through this week, particularly Thursday and Saturday, which will bring a slightly cooler day for Friday and Sunday, but no precipitation is expected.
Today: Clouds this morning with a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon. Maximum between mid-teens and early 20s. N winds 5-15 km/h.
This evening: Mostly clear. Lows in single digits. NE winds around 5 mph which may limit the wind chill factor but could still have below freezing wind chill for some spots in the morning.
Tomorrow: Mostly sunny. Highest in mid-20s to 30s. SW winds around 5 km/h.
After another cold night in the teens, temperatures Wednesday afternoon will be back above freezing for the first time since Saturday. There remain some differences in models on how hot it is on Wednesday, it could range from the mid 30’s to the mid 40’s.
Thursday through the weekend the temperature will be close to or above average for this time of year with highs and lows. The next chance of precipitation is Monday night next week with a mix of rain/snow.
