KANSAS...WITH NORTHWEST WINDS AVERAGING SUSTAINED SPEEDS OF 20 TO 30
MPH AND GUSTING UPWARDS OF 35 MPH AT TIMES. PRE-DAWN TEMPERATURES

MOST PLACES WERE PRECIPITATION-FREE...AREAS OF VERY LIGHT RAIN OR
SPRINKLES WERE FALLING WITHIN SOME COUNTIES MAINLY ALONG AND EAST OF
THE HIGHWAY 281 CORRIDOR. FORECAST-WISE...TODAY IS ESSENTIALLY A
ONE-DAY BUMP IN THE ROAD BETWEEN A MILD SATURDAY...AND AN EVEN
MILDER MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY. HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY ARE
FORECAST TO RANGE BETWEEN 43 AND 50 DEGREES ACROSS MOST OF THE LOCAL
AREA...WITH THE COOLEST READINGS FOCUSING NORTHEAST OF THE NEBRASKA
TRI CITIES. ADDING CHILL TO THE AIR WILL BE CONTINUED STOUT
NORTHWEST WIND...ALTHOUGH A VERY GRADUAL DOWNTURN IN SPEEDS WILL
OCCUR AS THE DAY WEARS ON. ALTHOUGH WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE LOCAL
AREA WILL PROBABLY CATCH A FAIR AMOUNT OF SUN THROUGH THE DAY AS A
WHOLE...COUNTIES NEAR AND EAST OF HIGHWAY 281 ARE LIKELY TO HOLD
ONTO QUITE A BIT OF CLOUD COVER...ALONG WITH SOME MORNING SPRINKLES.
LOOKING AHEAD TO MONDAY...ALTHOUGH WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL NOT TRULY
BE IDEAL THANKS TO NORTHWESTERLY BREEZES AVERAGING 15 TO 20 MPH WITH
HIGHER GUSTS...IT WILL NOT BE AS WINDY AS TODAY...AND IT WILL BE
CONSIDERABLY WARMER UNDER PLENTY OF SUNSHINE. IN FACT...HIGHS MONDAY
ARE FORECAST TO SPIKE ROUGHLY 20 DEGREES HIGHER THAN THOSE OF
TODAY...TOPPING OUT BETWEEN 62 AND 69 DEGREES ACROSS THE LOCAL AREA.
WELL-ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE ON TUESDAY AND
WEDNESDAY...WITH HIGHS AGAIN FORECAST INTO THE 60S IN MOST AREAS.
THANKS TO LIGHTER WIND...TUESDAY MAY ACTUALLY END UP BEING THE
OVERALL-NICEST DAY OF THE WEEK. COOLER...MORE SEASONABLE HIGH
TEMPERATURES IN THE 40S WILL RETURN BY THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...AND
MAYBE ONLY 30S ON SATURDAY. PRECIPITATION-WISE...THE VAST MAJORITY
OF THE UPCOMING WEEK IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN DRY...LIKELY CEMENTING
