We have chilly and partly to mostly cloudy conditions across Kansas this morning. Snow is falling across the northwest corner of Kansas and will last into this evening where 1-3 inches of snow can accumulate with slippery travel.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for 5 counties in the northwest corner of Kansas as well as southwest Nebraska until 3 a.m. Sunday morning.
Otherwise, there can be some spotty rains in central Kansas later in the day as the moisture surges back into Kansas. A few showers in southwest Kansas this morning will translate east through central Kansas during the afternoon reaching the I-135 corridor including the Wichita area the second half of the afternoon.
Clouds will generally be on the increase today with highs ranging from the lower 40s northwest to the upper 50s south central.
Spotty rain showers linger into Saturday evening with snow winding down in the northwest then skies remain rather cloudy overnight with lows from near 20 in the northwest to 20s to lower 30s elsewhere, a cold night for this time of year.
Spotty showers will move through the state on Sunday afternoon, and rain will be hit or miss through the evening. High temperatures will remain well-below average on Sunday.
Another round of rain will march into western Kansas on Sunday night with some snow likely again for Northwest Kansas. Moisture will continue overnight, with snowfall sticking around in northwest Kansas through Monday morning. Accumulations will be possible through Monday morning for northwest Kansas. The highest snowfall totals will be in far northwest Kansas and southwest Nebraska.
Temperatures will slowly increase toward our seasonal average as we move into the workweek. Highs sit in the 40s and 50s before we jump back up into the 60s by the middle of the week.
Rain returns to the Sunflower State late Wednesday night into Thursday, with showers expected across the region. A few thunderstorms will be possible. We will have a better handle on timing with this system later this week.
