High pressure has moved eastward and that has made way for clouds to stream in from the west. This is due to our next system that is developing to our SW. As moisture begins to head our way, a sprinkle or two could be seen throughout southern KS today but most of us will remain dry until early Friday.
Out ahead of this storm, temps will be warming back into the 40s and 50s but enjoy the mild air while it’s here because northerly flow will take back over this tomorrow into this weekend giving us highs back into the 30s. The primary form of precip. in the metro tomorrow will be rain but as you travel farther north and west, a mix of rain and snow will be seen.
We’ll see that changeover occur from the NW to SE through the day into Friday night which is the when Wichita will start to see its chances for wintry weather increasing. Accumulating snowfall is looking more and more likely as a result, with the heaviest snow across northern KS. This is where amounts could total in the 3-6″ range with only 1-2″ expected in Wichita.
Make sure you stay with us for the latest because number are preliminary and will be tweaked in the hours ahead. This low pressure center pulls eastward through our Saturday with some sunshine returning by Sunday.
Highs will be much colder only sitting in the 30s. Some moderation in our temps will be felt as we kick-start the workweek ahead of our next front with highs back in the 40s and 50s by Tuesday. Mostly cloudy skies will be seen as that moves through but we’re looking dry at the moment. We then look to cool back down into the 40s by mid-week.
Have a great Thursday!
