Wind, severe storms, and when will fall weather be back

Hope everyone had a nice weekend. We were spoiled last week with some incredible fall weather across Kansas. It was a nice break from the wind and humidity. The areas that needed to dry out finally had a chance to do so.

Wind & blowing dust today:
Western Kansas will see wind gusts over 40 mph Monday afternoon and this could create blowing dust.

Tuesday (severe weather potential):
This is the day we will put most of our focus on as severe weather chances return to the Plains. A very large storm is churning through the west and this will help generate thunderstorms with some hail and high winds. Some morning showers are possible Tuesday morning, but the better chances for storms and severe weather will arrive in the mid to late afternoon hours. Our Future Track shows the morning showers, and then after 2/3 p.m., scattered storms along the cold front arriving from the west. 

**This is the same front that will hopefully intercept Hurricane Matthew and keep it from hitting the East Coast. 

If you want the cool, fall weather back, most of us will have to wait until Thursday (across the west), but Friday for everyone else. North winds will take over and highs will fall into the 60s by the time we get to the end of the week.
