The mix of rain and snow flurries that stamped Monday in the metropolitan area has moved on, but a hearty north wind will still give a shudder to those not bundled up a bit.
Cloudy skies and temperatures in the mid-40s are in the forecast for today, with north winds blowing steadily in the mid-teens and gusting to more than 25 miles an hour. A freeze watch has been issued for a half-dozen counties in south-central Kansas tonight through Wednesday morning: Sedgwick, Reno, Harvey, Kingman, Harper and Sumner.
Temperatures are expected to drop to around 30 degrees for several hours overnight in the watch area, then climb to about 50 on Wednesday under mostly sunny skies. Winds will ease to the single digits.
