On Ronelle’s Radar: Winter weather impacts Kansas Thursday

Weather Blog

Wintry weather started yesterday and will continue through today. This morning, snow showers will be around and north of I-70 with more of a rain/snow mix in Southern Kansas.

Coverage of wintry weather will be more widespread after sunrise.

Winter weather alerts are in effect where hazardous travel is expected.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for extreme Northwest Kansas and Southwest Nebraska where 5″ to 6″ of snow already fell yesterday. That area could see an additional 5″ today.

The heaviest snow is still expected to fall around and north of I-70 totaling 2″ to 5″ with lesser amounts south. Snow and a wintry mix will start to taper during the afternoon in Western Kansas.

It won’t only look like winter but it’ll feel like it too with highs stuck in the 30s all day.

Some wintry weather will continue into the evening across Central Kansas but everyone will be dry after midnight.

Skies clear some and temperatures drop quite a bit into the teens to 20s.

It’s important that we still use caution on the roads Friday morning as there still could be some slick spots around, especially on elevated surfaces like bridges and overpasses. Dry Friday but another winter-like day with highs in the 30s and gusty northwest winds that will make it feel more like the 20s.

Still chilly over the weekend and we’ll have to watch out for some rain showers around South Central Kansas Sunday. Rain could mix with some snow in the rest of the area but amounts look light at this point.
