Temperatures are warming up! It’s a gradual process that will eventually lead us into the 50s and 60s later this week.
High pressure has taken control and will move to our east. This will allow us to tap into a more southerly flow as early as tonight. However, with snow still on the ground, temperatures will be cold!
Our wind flow will pick up on Wednesday, pushing us into the upper 30s to the 60s throughout the state. If you have leftover snow, your temperatures will be slightly cooler. There will also be a few more clouds added into the mix.
Wednesday night and into Thursday morning, a quick-moving system will track mostly through Nebraska. Some of this moisture will try to work into northern Kansas, north of I-70 in the form of rain and snow. Amounts are expected to be light.
Thursday morning, a rain/snow shower is possible for communities in south-central Kansas.
Heading into the weekend, we will watch for the potential for stronger thunderstorms from extreme eastern Kansas, along the KS/MO state line into Missouri and down south through Arkansas, Louisiana and northeast Texas. All forms of severe weather are possible and this part of the country will need to be monitored.
Trends are pointing to another stronger system capable of widespread heavy rainfall for next Tuesday as temperatures stay on the warmer side of the pendulum.
