Freeze warning & more stormy weather coming

A hard freeze is setting up for northwest Kansas going into Thursday morning. A reinforcing shot of cooler air will be coming down from the north into the night and temperatures will likely fall into the 20s for Goodland, Colby, maybe even as far south as Hays. Much of the state will see lows in the 30s. Be prepared for frost, even in areas that aren't in an advisory. Don't forget to disconnect the garden hoses too. As a kid, I had to learn this the hard way when our outdoor faucet froze and busted.

We are tracking another storm that is headed into Kansas for the end of the week.

There are two things that look very likely:
1) Heavier rains will stay south of Kansas. Oklahoma and Texas will once again catch the brunt of the storm with rain amounts over an inch (even some places will get 2 or 3 inches)
2) Any rain that we get at the end of the week will be over with by Halloween

The stormy pattern will continue for awhile longer. Another very large storm system will be developing in the western US early next week. It's WAY too early to see when it will get here and what it may do. The way things are going... it won't do much except create a lot of wind. I'll update you when I know more.
