Cold Front to Bring Gusty Winds, Fire Danger Monday; Much Cooler Temperatures Tuesday

A strong cold front will move through the region Monday, with gusty southwesterly winds ahead of the front, and stronger northwest winds behind the front in central Kansas.

Strong and gusty northwest winds behind a cold front will result in very high to possibly extreme grassland fire danger on Monday across central Kansas. Meanwhile, isolated thunderstorms will be possible across far southeast Kansas.
