A cold start to Friday with early morning temperatures in the teens to 20s. A few flurries or sprinkles will be around but won’t amount to much.
As a winter storm system continues to develop to our south expect a mix of clouds and sun today. Winds will be much lighter but will still make it feel colder, causing everyone to keep coats on all day. Highs warm through the 30s with a couple of spots possibly reaching 40 but that’s the best we’ll be able to do.
Late in the day there’s a small chance of a snow or rain shower close to the Kansas/Oklahoma line. As Texas and Oklahoma deal with snow and ice during the night and through Saturday there could still be a little snow in Southern Kansas, but chances are looking slim.
Winter Storm Watches are deep into Oklahoma and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for portions of Texas, Southern Missouri, and Arkansas. So anyone traveling south or east over the weekend will need to be ready for hazardous conditions.
Northern Kansas shouldn’t see any snow at all but amounts south will only get up to a trace to an inch.
As the storm system moves away from Kansas we’ll start to see temperatures improve by Sunday. There will still be a lingering chill into the start of the work week but we should be able to reach the low 50s before another chance of rain/snow showers moves in Wednesday through Thursday.
