The rest of our Christmas Eve will be quiet and chilly with fair skies. There could be a few sprinkles around Central and Eastern Kansas through the evening but otherwise conditions won’t be too bad for Santa and his reindeer to navigate through Kansas skies.
Lows tonight fall into the 20s to low 30s which is what we’ll wake up to early Christmas morning.
Much of Kansas should also experience a nice sunrise in the morning before we cloud back up. High temperatures work their way back into the 40s and 50s.
There’s a small chance of an isolated sprinkle or two late in the day and evening but a much better chance of rain will hold off until the overnight.
A strong storm system moving through the middle of the country will keep soggy conditions around through Wednesday. Some rumbles of thunder are possible too. There could be a rain/snow mix at times in Northwestern Kansas.
Rain continues Wednesday night and Thursday but much colder air will start to work into Kansas, changing rain and a mix to snow in Northwestern Kansas. This is where there could be accumulating snow and why a Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the northwest corner of our viewing area.
Portions of Southwestern and North Central Kansas could still see some flakes mix in at times but it’s looking like all rain for South Central Kansas and Wichita. Rain and snow will taper through Thursday. The highest rain amounts will be around 1″ to 2″.
Snow in Northwestern Kansas and Southwestern Nebraska could range from an inch or two to several inches. The rest of the week will feel more like winter as highs fall into the 20s and 30s.
