A storm system has been eyeing Kansas for days and now it is beginning to move in. Clouds are thick and moisture will continue to stream up from the south. Most of this will falling in the form of rain for our Friday in the metro but as you travel north and west, that is where we’re going to see that switch over to snow a little bit quicker.
Precipitation will likely begin to mix with some wet snow across northern and western KS by the early afternoon with snow likely later on this evening. In the metro, our changeover is looking more likely in that 6-10 PM timeframe but the quicker it does mix with snow, the more we’ll see accumulate.
Totals will likely be in the 4-6″ range across north-central and north-west KS with isolated higher amounts possible. In the metro, accumulations will be in that 1-3″ range. These number will continue to be fine tuned in the hours ahead so make sure you stay with us for the latest.
Winter Weather Advisories have been issued and will go into effect today, lasting into Saturday AM for that snow and the travel impacts along with it. This low pressure center begins to move northeast Saturday and will leave us much colder into the latter half of the weekend.
We’ll likely see some lingering snow in KC if you’re heading to the Chiefs game so make sure you bundle up. Wind chills will likely be in the teens and 20s through the afternoon and evening in Chiefs Kingdom.
Highs will only be in the 20s and 30s Sunday with a nice rebound in temps by the start of the workweek. We’ll see a mix of clouds and sunshine for Monday but more cloud cover Tuesday as our next cold front approaches. Out ahead of that, we’ll feel some nice moderation in our highs with afternoon reading in the 40s and 50s.
Have a great weekend and stay safe!
