Arctic Front to Bring Cold and Wind Tonight

After highs are forecasted to be in the 50s Sunday, get ready for big changes Monday. Another arctic front will push through Sunday evening leaving temperatures only in the teens for highs Monday and Tuesday. Wind chills Monday and Tuesday morning will be below zero. The front is expected to come with clouds and wind. Most spots will not see any precipitation due to limited moisture but a few flurries can't be ruled out as cold air pushes through that could reduce visibilities for a time with the winds. It will not amount to any accumulation. The National Weather Service has also issued wind advisory as well as a wind chill advisory is in effect for northeast KS:
