A Wind Advisory is in effect today for counties along and west of Highway 65 from 9 AM this morning through midnight tonight for sustained southerly winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. Strongest wind gusts will occur this afternoon and then will

finally start to diminish after midnight. Along with gusty winds, today will be the warmest day of the week with highs 10 degrees above average for this time of year reaching the mid 60s across the area.

The mid-level trough begins to move into the area on Friday. However, latest model guidance has sped up the timing of the trough even more than the previous forecast update. Have pushed up the ending timing of the precipitation for this weekend. Rain

begins to move in around noon on Friday for areas west of Highway 65. Rain will continue to push east through Friday, but is now expected to diminish by Saturday afternoon. Thunderstorms are still possible overnight Friday into Saturday, but severe weather is not expected. Since the ending time of rain is expected to occur much earlier with the latest forecast update, this has eliminated the possibility of seeing any snow flurries or rain/snow mix on the backside of the front. Temperatures will be around 40 degrees which means the precip type will be rain. Rainfall amounts will be least in southeast Kansas with higher amounts east of highway 65 due to the progressive

nature of the front. Rainfall amounts look to range from 0.10-0.50 inch across the area.

High temperatures Friday and Saturday will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Though, temperatures will fall throughout the day on Saturday as that colder air begins to filter through. As for Sunday, highs will only reach the lower 40s. Drier weather returns for

the beginning of next week with highs warming back near average for this time of year into the lower 50s.
