Temperatures to dip a bit

September 28, 2004


Most of the rain that moved into Kansas overnight is expected to stay just west of Topeka today, said Jennifer Schack, 6News meteorologist.

"We have a few high thin clouds out there," Schack said.

The National Weather Service says there's a 20 percent chance of showers today before 1 p.m.

Temperatures were starting out in the 60s this morning and were expected to reach 69 by noon and a high of only 73 by 4 p.m., Schack said.

"This would be the coolest day we've had for the fall season," she said. And she recommended getting out some blankets if you open your windows tonight -- the temperature will cool off to a low of 45 by early Wednesday morning.

However, Wednesday's temperature was expected to rebound to 75 by the late afternoon.

On Thursday, winds will be out of the south, bringing warmer temperatures to the area. Thursday's morning low will be 50, climbing to a high of 82.

There's another chance for showers on Friday, with the low starting at 53 and the high reaching 72, Schack said. The National Weather Service says the chance for showers and thunderstorms is 20 percent after 1 a.m. Friday, then 40 percent during the day on Friday and 40 percent Friday night.
