On Ronelle’s Radar: Winter system wraps up after hazardous commute

Weather Blog

Our winter system is wrapping up but there will still be some snow showers around through sunrise.

An Ice Storm Warning for Elk, Chautauqua, and Greenwood Counties will stay in effect through Noon. A Winter Weather Advisory for the rest of the area will also stay in effect through the morning hours. It’ll be slow going once again for morning commuters as slick conditions are likely.

Everyone will need to allow extra time on the roads and extra time bundling up. Temperatures are starting off in the teens and single digits with wind chills below zero.

Gusty northwest winds will keep wind chills in the single digits and below zero all day.

High temperatures only warm about 10 degrees from where they’re at now.

Clouds will break by midday and we’ll see some sun return during the afternoon which will help melt some ice. Cold air stays in place tonight and skies clear even more. This will bring low temperatures all the way down into the single digits across the area.

Subzero wind chills are likely Friday morning. But we’ll see even more sun that will help melt more snow and ice. Highs will still be cold but will start to improve while warming into the 30s. 40s are likely Saturday but increasing clouds will signal our next batch of moisture getting ready to move in.

There’s a chance for some rain/snow showers Sunday, especially in Central Kansas. Rain/snow showers will be possible Monday through Tuesday too as another system in the middle of the country gains strength. Temperatures next week will still be chilly.
