Big change arrives ... first winter storm

The cold front is here and big changes are looming for much of the central and northern Plains. Travel is going to be difficult for areas north of Kansas and the cold air will probably be a shock to our bodies.
At 7 a.m. this morning, the cold front is already changing temperatures in western Kansas. The front is moving a little faster than what we were looking at yesterday, so we won't have record highs today in the west. We could still get close in central and eastern Kansas.

The first snowfall of the season will stretch from Colorado to Minnesota, and it could be nearly a foot deep in the Dakotas. Blizzard warnings have been posted.

Weekend Outlook:
Looks chilly, but should be dry. Winds will back down for Saturday, then turn to the south for Sunday.

Every day this month has been above normal (so far) and our average high temperature is over 71 degrees. This November is on track to rank in the top 10 warmest on record, but with chillier weather slated for the next few weeks, we will see if that ranking holds up.
