What an afternoon! Temps have warmed nicely across the state under plentiful amounts of sunshine.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Kansas without a stronger breeze and we’ve seen those winds increase as the day has continued.
The winds will stay up overnight. Because of these warm southerly winds, temps tonight won’t be too bad.
A strong cold front will sweep through the state on Saturday. It will come through on a dry note, but you’ll notice the winds of change from the south to the north. The winds will continue to stay gusty as temperatures will fall. These temperatures will be felt early in the day with falling temps by late afternoon and into the evening.
For Sunday, snow is still in store for some folks in northern Kansas. The best spots to see some snowflakes will be along and north of I-70.
The heaviest bands of snow will be from McCook to Concordia to Manhattan and points northeast of that line. This snow will track to the east/southeast early on Easter.
While this system will knock our temps down, we’ll get right back up again. Tonight I’ll let you know how much we’ll warm as a new work week begins and where additional showers are expected. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
