The coldest air of the season will arrive throughout the day Monday with temperatures falling throughout the day. Temperatures will begin the day in the 40s but with a cold front expected to be along the Nebraska/Kansas border in the morning and around I-70 by noon, temperatures farther to the north won't warm up that much. Highs may still warm up to the mid-upper 50s along and south of I-70 if the speed of the cold front stays as expected despite mostly cloudy skies. Behind the front a breezy north wind gusting up to 30 mph will create wind chills 5-10 degrees below the actual temperature. The breezy conditions continue Monday night and with lows around 20° single digit wind chills are not out of the question. Despite sunshine returning Tuesday the arctic air will still be in place keeping highs only in the 30s although if there's any good news the winds will diminish up to 10 mph by late morning/early afternoon. Highs will warm up to the upper 50s by the weekend although there are indication highs may be in the low 60s.
As far as precipitation chances there is a slight chance of rain on Monday although most spots will stay dry and for those that do see anything it won't amount to much. More rain chances occur Thursday, Saturday, and next Monday with the best chance as of now on Saturday although still a slight chance. Even though all precipitation chances are expected to remain rain, if it lingers in the overnight periods a few flurries not out of the question but no accumulation would be expected.
