There will be a lot of new entertainment so come and check it out. The carnival will be here and all kinds of crafters. If you're into food and just want to sit around and have a good time.

Tomorrow we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will start to move away from the area on Saturday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s and watch for our next chance for rain on Sunday.
