Mostly clear skies dominated western Kansas overnight, however
areas of dense fog developed across portions of western Kansas

eastern half of Kansas, while from eastern Colorado through
western Kansas, lows ranged from the low 20s to mid 40s.
A large upper level low pressure system along the California and
Nevada border will advance into the Great Basin region of the
Rockies by tomorrow evening, while a surface cold front drops
southeast across western Kansas today, and through the rest of
Kansas by tomorrow evening. Rainshowers are expected to develop
across southwest Kansas late tonight, with a mixture of freezing
rain and snow in northwest Kansas. The freezing rain will then
spread southeast into southwest and central Kansas by late
tomorrow afternoon, with northwest Kansas switching to all snow.
Temperatures will remain above normal through today in southwest
Kansas, but will drop to below normal levels tomorrow as colder
air filters in from the north.

eastern and central Kansas, with low 60s to around 70 in southwest
Kansas. In the northwest corner of the state, highs will only
