It has been unseasonably cold for the last several days.  Afternoon high Temperatures have been running 20-30 degrees below our Average of 70 (wouldn't that be nice).  Our temperatures have been more representative of what we normally see in early December, not October.  For the 3rd time in 4 days, Topeka and Concordia both set Record Lowest High Temps with high highs only making the 40s.  Temperatures are forecasted to be very cold today and tomorrow as well so we may set even more Records.  Again, these are Record Lowest High Temperatures.
