There are some light flurries or snow pellets being picked up by Storm Tracker Radar this morning but there hasn’t been much ground truth as most of Kansas continues to sleep.
This activity will wrap up by sunrise. It’s another frigid start with morning temperatures in the 20s and 30s.
Wind chills are as low as the teens to make it feel bitter as soon as a light breeze picks up. Winds will stay light today and we’ve actually got a better day to look forward to when it comes to high temperatures. You’ll also notice an uptick in clouds but we’ll still be able to get some sunshine today under partly cloudy skies. Warmer air that’s been confined to Western Kansas will gradually shift east and most of the area will experience a much better afternoon.
Getting up to near 50 in Wichita. Areas north that still have snow on the ground will only make it into the 40s which will still feel chilly but will also be warmer than days past. Extreme Western Kansas will warm back up into the 50s and even 60s in spots. Mild and partly cloudy again Thursday and then more changes move in.
There’s a chance of rain Friday, timing looks to be afternoon and evening. After sundown some snow could mix with rain in Northwestern Kansas. Rain and snow will be possible Saturday through Sunday, mainly across Northern Kansas, as temperatures really start to experience a downward trend.
A bigger push of moisture and cooler air Sunday will bring a better chance of rain/snow and snow showers late Sunday through Monday.
Accumulating snow can’t be ruled out, especially in Northern and Western Kansas. Once temperatures bottom out early next week it’ll take a few days for us to warm back up.
