SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2018 LOCAL4CAST by KIT CLONINGER
Today was a bit warmer than Friday after we warmed up from lows in the mid 40s. But the sunshine dominating the state allowed us to warm up rather quickly, and Sunday will be much of the same story. Morning lows will be down to the low 50s and some upper 40s possible, but not quite as chilly as Saturday morning was.
Sunday afternoon will be a bit windy. Winds could gust up to 25 to 30mph around our area, but coming from the South, this will bring in warmer air and our highs back up around 80 degrees. This will be the warmest day for the first week of Fall, which began Saturday. After Sunday, temperatures will decline quickly.
Monday highs will be in the mid to upper 70s, but late afternoon clouds will increase ahead of an approaching cold front. This front could bring the chance for a few showers and thunderstorms, though it isn't likely these will be severe at this point. What is certain is the cooler air behind the front will now settle into the Plains and highs through the remainder of the week will only be in the mid to upper 60s, with lows in the 40s.
