High temperatures in Topeka over the past ten days have been quite extreme. A chilly period from October 18th through the 21st was brought to a brief end as a warm front surged north across eastern Kansas early on the 22nd. The high temperature of 87 degrees that day fell just one degree short of the record. A cold front swept through the region that night and ushered a cold Canadian air mass into the central Plains which has kept cold and cloudy conditions in place since. the high temperatures of 32 degrees on the 26th and 36 degrees on the 27th both set records for the lowest maximum temperature for those days. Highs on 23rd, 24th, and 25th all fell within the top-5 coldest high temperatures for those days. Temperature records for Topeka date back to 1887.
