We’re now in the coldest season of the year. Winter started at 4:23pm with temps well above normal in the 50s and even 60s.
Friday evening will be dry but you’ll need a coat if you plan on being out and about. Temperatures cool into the 40s and then the 30s after sundown. That’s where we’ll start early Saturday morning.
A cold front overnight will bring noticeably cooler high temperatures over the weekend. Saturday’s highs should be able to sneak into the low 50s around the Wichita Metro but temps will be in the 30s and 40s across the rest of the area.
There’s a small chance of a flurry or sprinkle in Western Kansas during the afternoon and evening. An even smaller chance of a sprinkle sneaking into Central Kansas during the evening.
Sunday stays dry with cool temps in the 40s to low 50s. Skies will yield a mix of clouds and sun. Quiet weather Christmas Eve with partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. Wet weather returns Christmas Day in the form of a chance of light rain showers.
Rain becomes likely by Tuesday night with some snow mixed in in Northwestern Kansas. This is what we can expect through Wednesday, making the middle of the week a soggy one.
Wednesday night and early Thursday is when we’ll see more snow than rain in Western Kansas.
But Thursday will be much drier. It’ll also feel a lot more like winter by this time next week as Friday’s highs fall into the 30s to low 40s.
