A strong autumn cold front will bulldoze through the area Wednesday with a solid 20 to 25 degree temperature swing and some rain as well.
The risk of severe storms is very limited for this particular cold front. I could see a few storms with small hail in southern parts of the area later tonight. Once the front goes by, the risk of thunderstorms will be primarily in southern parts of Kansas and Missouri with patchy rain through half of the afternoon before moving out.
Temperatures will be in the 60s well before daybreak then fall into the mid to upper 50s through daybreak and into the lower 50s during the afternoon. Heading into Wednesday night, temperatures will fall into the mid 30s with some frost possible while northern sections drop toward the freezing mark!
As for NASCAR weekend ahead, we’ll see temperatures trend back toward late summer with 70s and increasing amounts of humidity. Other than a stray shower or rumble of thunder (20%), Saturday and Sunday’s races should have mainly dry weather.
