Weather & Climate
What is the weather like in Kansas? Kansas' "big sky," dramatic sunsets, and great variability in temperature and precipitation are all important aspects of the regional personality. Snow, wind, and rain are common throughout the state during corresponding seasons, and the continental climate (on occasion) produces varying temperature change.
Generally the summers are quite warm, the winters are mild, and the humidity is on the moderate side. January is the coldest month, with average high temperatures near 31 degrees. July is the warmest month, with average high temperatures near 81 degrees. Much hotter summers and cold winters are not uncommon.
Annual precipitation amounts range from 30 - 40 inches in the east, while drier conditions are common in the west. In Kansas you can enjoy four distinct seasons, each with its own unique qualities.
