525 AM CDT Tue Oct 17 2017

With plenty of sunshine in place, temperatures warmed into the 60s
and 70s across the region on Monday. The cooler air was ushered in
on northeast winds with high pressure located over the Ohio Valley.

The aforementioned high pressure continues to dominate with
temperatures at this time downright chilly in some parts of the
state. Readings at the 5 am hour range from the mid 30s in the
sheltered and normally colder locations to the mid to upper 40s.
Winds remain light and from the northeast under mainly clear skies.
A little patchy fog is also showing up in a few spots.

High pressure and the very dry air mass associated with it will be
in place through the majority of the upcoming week. Temperatures
will top out in the 70s across the state with sunny skies once
again. There will be a slight warming trend through the week but
overall temperatures will average close to normal.

A storm system will move into the western high plains over the
weekend with moisture on the increase as a result. Rain chances will
ramp up significantly Saturday night and into Sunday as the system
moves through.

Given the lack of precipitation since the beginning of September,
the wildfire danger will remain elevated. In fact, the next chance
of rain will not be until the weekend when the aforementioned system
moves through.
