We’re in the calm before the storm right now. While a sprinkle south of the Kansas/Oklahoma line can’t be ruled out tonight the bulk of our next storm system will hold off until Friday.
Winter Weather Advisories have been issued and will be in effect Friday through Saturday.
Clouds will continue to build overnight, keeping low temperatures in the 30s.
But rain showers could impact the morning commute. A chilly rain will spread through the area Friday morning. A few wet flakes could mix in with rain during the afternoon but a wintry change is looking more likely during the evening.
Highs will be colder in the upper 30s to low 40s. So shortly after the sun goes down is when we’ll really start to notice a change from rain to a mix and snow showers.
Wintry weather will continue through the night and lead to accumulating snow and some blowing snow which will cause hazardous travel by Saturday.
Snow and a wintry mix will taper west to east through Saturday but some snow showers could linger into the evening hours in the Kansas City area. Chiefs Kingdom will need to dress in layers for Saturday’s big game.
Most snow totals will range from 2″ to 5″. A sliver of Western and North Central Kansas could see locally higher amounts up to 6″.
Sunday will be dry but still cold with highs in the 30s. Temperatures start to rebound early next week but will be seasonable with the exception of a warmer day.
