On Ronelle’s Radar: The next winter storm

Weather Blog

A cold front is moving through and it’ll bring more clouds and chillier temperatures into Kansas. It’ll also bring a few flurries and sprinkles into Northern and Central Kansas.

Breezy winds out of the north will give the air a raw feel. Morning temperatures start in the 20s and 30s. Chilly northerly flow won’t allow highs to rebound much as highs stay in the 30s.

Any flurries will wrap up by the afternoon though and we might be able to get some cloud breaks. A better chance of snow and a wintry mix moves into the region Friday. For our area, Southern Kansas and Northern Oklahoma will see most of the effects.

Activity will pick up by late Friday and we should see all snow by Friday night with the greater chance remaining in Southern Kansas. Snow showers continue through Saturday but will wrap up by Saturday night.

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for most of our Oklahoma counties through Saturday evening where upwards of 4″ of snow could fall.

Even though there will be plenty of cold air for this next event, we won’t see much moisture make a push into Kansas. This is why the highest amounts will trend to the south of Kansas.

We’ll still have to keep a close eye on the forecast and the track of this storm as even a slight shift could bring a big change to the forecast. Temperatures start to warm back up Sunday and we’ll keep warming through the middle of next week, which is when some moisture could return to the area.
