(KAKE) -

Mother Nature played a pretty cruel April Fool’s joke on KAKEland today. Thanks to a strong cold front, most of the state dropped over 30 degrees from yesterday’s highs. More weather whiplash is expected this week with highs swinging from the 70s and 80s to the 40s and 50s several times over the next seven days, with the biggest temperatures fluctuations in western Kansas.
