After a couple of chilly days to start the work week this week, more mild weather is expected for the next several days before colder and more unsettled weather returns to the area this weekend.
Wednesday should be warmer for most of us, with highs returning to the low and mid 40s for most of the coverage area thanks to more southerly winds. More easterly winds are anticipated for the northern and northeastern parts of the state, which will hold temperatures down into the 20s and 30s.
Thursday should see a nice jump in temperatures with highs reaching the upper 40s to around 50° with mostly sunny skies with similar conditions on Friday to finish the week.
An arctic front will settle south into the area beginning Friday night, ushering in colder weather for the upcoming weekend. Highs on Saturday and Sunday will drop into the mid 30s and with several disturbances moving through the area, some chances for light snow will return to the forecast.
It appears now that better chances for rain and snow will exist south of the area into Kansas and Oklahoma, but on the northern edge of this system, some light snow is anticipated across the southern parts of the area this weekend into early next week.
