Nice weather to start the week...


It's going to be another nice day across Kansas and Missouri, though conditions will be a bit windy today into Tuesday. A cold front will sweep through the region Tuesday night, likely generating thunderstorms during the evening and overnight periods of Tuesday, with showers lingering well into Wednesday. With the cool air the front is ushering into the Plains States, expect highs in the 50s and 60s through the rest of the work week, with a on-again-off-again chance of storms persisting into the weekend.
