A quiet day is in store on this Tuesday with a brief warm up. Even though it will feel very warm, the temperatures are very average for October as we rise into the 60s and 70s.
Wind stays light out of the south all day with a partly sunny sky and slight chances for isolated rain in the North. Tonight, lows will dip to the 30s and 40s but stay above freezing with increasing rain chances.
The highs on Wednesday will be much cooler than Tuesday as we only rise into the 40s and 50s. Wind will be an increasing concern as sustained wind speeds will rise to NW 20-25 mph, gusting to 30-40 mph.
A cold front will change some of the rain in the North to a rain/snow mix, if not all light snow. Frigid lows on Wednesday night as we dip to the 20s.
We’ll continue to keep the colder daytime highs through at least the first half of October. Several chances for rain and snow will move through the Upper Plains over the next week. We are currently watching a storm that could move through the second half of the weekend and the beginning of next week.
