Colder temperatures and some wintery weather moved through the Area on Monday. Rain and even some snowflakes were seen, but it’s nothing like what they had across the upper mid-west. Portions of Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota and South Dakota had blizzard conditions as the storm system moved northeast over the central portions of the country.
Northwest Kansas and southwest and central Nebraska had snowfall totals above 10-inches.
Temperatures on Monday ranged from an overnight high of 57-degrees. Then as the frontal system passed through, temperatures dropped into the 30s. The thermometer hovered in the mid-30s much of the day.
We’ll see a warming trend over the next couple of days as a ridge of high pressure will build over the central plains. This will bring clear skies, sunshine, and warmer temperatures. Temperatures will rebound back into the lower to mid-50s beginning on Wednesday. These temperatures will continue through Friday before another upper-level disturbance brings us an overnight chance of rain overnight Friday.
After the system moves through temperatures will drop back into the mid-40s for the beginning of next week.
