This bomb of a cyclone continues so sit and spin, bringing adverse weather conditions to all of Kansas and the Plains. This storm went through what we call “Bombogenesis”, meaning explosive intensification with a pressure fall of at least 24 mb in 24 hours.
This has brought gusty winds as well as rain to the viewing area with more expected tonight. This system will be pulling off to the northeast tonight with some wraparound rain and snow possible but the best chances will be across northern and NW Kansas.
Heavier showers are expected out across northern and western communities tonight and that is where we still find some Flood Watches and Flood Warnings for our area rivers and creeks.
With that our strong breeze will begin to subside a little but we’re still expecting gusts into the 50s and even 60s through the day on Thursday.
As a result, High Wind Warnings will continue for many of us into tomorrow. Blizzard Warnings have also been posted for far western Kansas as a result of the whiteouts and blowing snow into Thursday but the big headline will be the wind, not the snow accumulation.
Totals should range from a trace up to 3″ of snow with the heaviest along the Kansas-Nebraska Stateline.
A few rain or snow showers will be possible through the day tomorrow but much drier conditions will be seen on Friday as high pressure builds in. This will give us more sunshine into the start of the weekend with plenty of sun to go around Saturday and Sunday. Winds will switch back around to the south which will help our temps get back into the 50s and 60s right into the start of next week. Our next disturbance looks to move our way Monday night into Tuesday giving us another chance of rain.
Have a great night!
