Latest on the Tuesday Cold Blast

Enjoy the weekend because Tuesday will begin a stretch of the coldest temperatures this season. A cold front will sweep through the region Monday with a mix of sun and clouds and highs ranging anywhere from the mid-upper 40s along the Nebraska/Kansas to near 60 south of I-70. It will also be breezy on Veterans Day with gusts up to 30 mph. As far as precipitation goes there are indications of a light rain shower during the day but I really think if any precipitation is present it will be gone by the time the cold air arrives although still can't rule out a few flurries Monday night. After a few morning clouds we'll see lots of sunshine by Tuesday afternoon but won't help temperatures as highs will struggle to reach 40°. Tuesday night will be the coldest of the season with lows around 20°. Luckily winds will be nearly calm but any breeze even at 5 mph would put wind chills in the low-mid teens. For the rest of the week there is a slight chance of rain Thursday and also next Saturday but all 3 chances of precipitation throughout the next 8 day won't amount to much. Highs will slowly warm up to around 50° by the end of the week.
