Our chilly trend across the Plains will continue as we kick-start the work week as high pressure continues to build in from the NW. This will bring yet another day with highs near the freezing mark. Not only will this high bring NW flow but it will start to decrease those clouds little by little. We can’t rule out a passing flurry or two though as this system that brought rain and snow to the region continues to depart to the east. Mostly to partly cloudy skies will be the scene across much of the state with a little more clearing expected through the overnight.
By Tuesday, a lot more sunshine be seen as some ridging builds into the southern Plains. This means warmer conditions for us! Temps will surge back up into the upper 30s and lower 40s under mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.
Even warmer air arrives for Wednesday as SW winds kick in making for a day into the low to mid 40s. Don’t get to used to it as a little disturbance moves in from the NW. This will set us up for a colder Thursday with a snow shower or two possible, mainly across North-Central Kansas. Our attention then starts to shift to a system that begins to move into the area by Friday.
With the colder air in place, it’s looking like it may be a snowier scenario for most of the region which means this system bears watching. The way trends are looking now, our southern counties have a better shot at seeing some snow versus our northern neighborhoods but continue to stay with Storm Track 3 for the latest information. The latter half of the weekend is looking much drier and pleasant with lots of sunshine and temps near 40.
