Conditions across the state are quieting down as high pressure is building in behind the low pressure center that brought all of the rain and snow throughout the last 48 hours. Slick spots and snow covered roads are still be seen out west so make sure you travel carefully if you head out. A little more sunshine will be seen today but highs will struggle to get out of the 20s and 30s today to that bitter NW wind. That will make for some frigid wind chills as well with some of us falling below 0° early.
Clouds will thicken up later on tonight as a weak low pressure scoots by to our south. This will give SW Kansas a shot at a few snow showers but little to no accumulation is expected. We’ll see partly to mostly cloudy skies again for Saturday but winds do begin to quiet even further, and eventually switch back to the SW.
This will bring a nice rebound in our temps by Sunday under mostly sunny skies. A potent cold front will then approach the area Sunday night into New Year’s Eve and that will bring much colder air to the region yet again. Not only will we feel the below average chill but Kansas could see some snow showers at it pushes through. Make sure you stay with us through the weekend as we track this next round of snow. By New Year’s Day, high temps will be sitting in the teens and 20s. We start to feel some moderation through the week though as dry conditions prevail throughout our first week of January.
Have a great weekend!
