Record watch today - colder air & a storm soon

Hope everyone had a nice weekend. The weather has been rather uneventful now for over a week and we still don't see any big storms rolling into the Plains for awhile. However, we are still on the lookout for some rather big temperature swings over the next few days.

With afternoon highs climbing into the upper 60s-near 70, we will be on record watch. Most of the records around Kansas are close to 70, so let's see how things end up. Some of the old records date back into the 1800s.

There's a fairly strong cold front that will send us back to winter temperatures by the middle of the week. The front will come through Tuesday night, so Wednesday looks much chillier around the area. It will still be dry.

For the first time in nearly 2 weeks, there's a chance we could see SOME moisture at the end of the week. A low pressure system will move in from the western US and bring clouds by Friday, followed by some chances for light rain (mixed with a little snow) by Saturday. This is not likely to be a big storm, and any moisture we get from it should be light. In fact, several of the computer models push most of the measurable moisture off to our east.
