TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A cold front will be making its way through northeast Kansas late Saturday night. As the front pushes through, winds will switch directions from the SW to the N, ushering in much colder air. Temperatures Sunday will be about 25 degrees colder than Saturday.

A few locations along the Nebraska border may get lucky as the cold front pushes through and see a brief rain shower, but most of us will remain dry tonight.

After the front passes through late Saturday night, we will be left with a northerly winds the next couple of days allowing for colder air to settle in with mostly cloudy skies. Sunday evening, we may have the cloudy skies break apart across the region, and if we do we will likely see highs in the low 50s. If cloud cover lingers into Sunday evening, we will only see highs in the upper 40s. Regardless, it is going to be much cooler than what we saw on Saturday!
