Bitter wind chills and winter cold have been the weather story through Friday. Skies have been clearer in Western Kansas which should’ve helped melt some snow and ice.
But temperatures have been below freezing all day so anything that’s melted will likely refreeze after sundown.
Drivers traveling in Western Kansas will still need to watch out for slick and icy conditions. Skies tonight will be partly to mostly cloudy with lows ranging from the 20s to teens. There could be lows closer to the single digits around.
A small chance of a snow shower in Southwestern Kansas won’t amount to more than an inch between Friday night and Saturday.
The middle of the weekend brings lighter winds, a mix of clouds and sun, and more cold air as highs only reach the low 30s.
Skies will clear Saturday night, leading to a sunny Sunday. And high temperatures to end the weekend will reach the 40s. Our next disturbance will move in Sunday night. Moisture will be drawn into Central and Eastern Kansas as rain/snow.
A cold front approaching Northwestern Kansas will bring a chance of snow. A chance of snow showers and a wintry mix will linger into Monday. Storm track, timing, and amounts are still being worked out.
We shouldn’t see anything falling from the sky after sundown New Year’s Eve, but there could be snow or ice on the ground and it will be very cold for those who will be out.
Active weather will take a break once we’re into the new year and temperatures gradually warm back up.
