On Ronelle's Radar: Weekend starts cool & ends wintry

A few passing showers will be around through the morning. Some could be heavy at times with an isolated rumble but severe weather isn't expected.

It'll be a chilly rain too with morning temperatures starting in the 40s. Spotty rain will continue to move from west to east until midday. The afternoon looks much drier but still mainly cloudy and cool with highs in the 50s.

Friday evening and night stays dry with clouds breaking up a bit more. But more clouds move in early Saturday morning. Remnants from a tropical storm will bring a chance of rain and cloudy skies through much of Saturday.

There will be a chance of rain/snow in Western Kansas Saturday night.

And by Sunday a powerful cold front will plow through the state, dropping temperatures and changing rain to snow.

Western Kansas looks to pick up the most with up to several inches possible. North Central Kansas could see a couple of inches. The Wichita Metro could see some wet flakes mix into rain Sunday but temperatures won't drop closer to freezing until the evening, leading to a rain/snow mix Sunday night.

I expect to see winter weather alerts in the area be issued by Saturday. Anyone in Western Kansas should be ready for hazardous travel by the end of the weekend. And it's safe to anticipate slick conditions Sunday night and early Monday morning in Central Kansas.

We'll dry out and warm up during the work week to give us a break from busy weather.
