Many of us saw a fair amount of sunshine for our Saturday but clouds have been thickening up through the day as a weak, upper level disturbance has been racing across the state. This will give us a shot at some rain or snow showers this evening into tonight. The concern is some lower level dry air which could prevent some of the precip. from making it to the surface but continue to stay to Storm Tracker Radar and ksn.com for the latest.
This quickly moves eastward tonight with high pressure briefly building in tomorrow and this will give us a lot of sunshine for our day tomorrow but clouds will be on the increase yet again. Western Kansas will be the first to see those clouds later on tomorrow afternoon with mainly cloudy conditions expected Sunday night.
Clouds don’t leave us Christmas Eve or Christmas Day either due to our next system heading our way. This low pressure center will be more potent and will bring gusty winds and some heavier rains to the area by Christmas night into the middle of next week. A few sprinkles are possible Christmas Day but chances are slim.
As we step through the day on Wednesday, that is where the brunt of this storm will be felt with periods of heavy rain and some rain and snow across NW Kansas where temps will be much colder than the metro. Some accumulations of snow could be seen and this is something that we will be fine tuning in the days ahead so stay with the Storm Track 3 Weather Team. Clouds stick around through the end of the week as well with a few lingering snow or rain showers possible on Thursday. By Friday we’ll finally see some peeks of sunshine with more sun expected by Saturday. Not only will see brighter skies by the weekend but we’ll tap into much colder air with highs in the 20s and 30s by Friday and Saturday.
Have a great Saturday night and Sunday!
