Arctic cold air remained entrenched across the High Plains this
afternoon and evening. A few lingering flurries were noted across
extreme south central Kansas late this afternoon. However, little to
no accumulations were expected. Highs today only reached into the
teens and lower 20s in western Kansas while upper 20s were observed
in southeastern Kansas.
Upper level flow will become more northwesterly through Tuesday
afternoon as a trough in eastern Kansas moves towards the
Mississippi Valley tonight. As cold surface high pressure moves out
of the Central Plains, troughing will develop on the lee side of the
Rockies. Very cold temperatures and clear skies are expected tonight
with warmer temperatures expected on Tuesday.
Lows tonight will be in the single digits across western Kansas as
temperatures plunge to below zero again in eastern Colorado. Highs
on Tuesday will range from the upper 30s in northeastern Colorado to
the lower 40s in southwestern Kansas.
