Our break from wintry weather continues this morning but we’ll still have to be cautious of slick spots. There’s some patchy fog and temperatures are below freezing, so freezing fog is a possiblity.
By midday there’s a small chance for a light rain shower or a sprinkle as temperatures warm above freezing. It’ll still be chilly in the 30s across Northern Kansas, this is where there could be a rain/snow shower or a wintry mix during the afternoon.
A small rain/snow chance lingers in Northern Kansas during the night. More clouds move in Friday and they’ll bring a slightly better chance of rain showers. This will be the first part of another significant storm system. We’ll have to watch for a light mix or freezing drizzle in the morning before we warm above freezing.
Rain starts to change to snow in Western Kansas by Friday evening. This trend continues into Saturday and by the morning there could be heavy snow and blizzard conditions due to strong wind gusts.
Snow tracks into North Central Kansas through Saturday while South Central Kansas experiences moderate to heavy rain. This will be a strong storm system that will be packing a lot of energy. That means some rumbles of thunder are possible in South Central and Eastern Kansas. Late in the day Saturday the storm will start to move out and the Wichita Metro and Eastern Kansas will see a quick change to snow or a wintry mix which will continue through the evening.
Sunshine returns Sunday but this next storm will leave its mark with accumulating snow likely in Western and Northern Kansas. Temperatures hover around the 40s through early next week but another big dip in the jet stream the middle of next week will bring another big cool down.
