It’s been wonderful to see the sunshine after this weekend’s blizzard. Tonight, nature is setting us up for a spectacular sunset! Here it is if you missed it!
Because of the added bonus of sun and light winds, temperatures have been able to warm for some – not all of us today.
It’s been a slow warm-up due to snow cover on the ground. As you can see here, most of the state picked up some degree of snow with the blizzard over the weekend. Amounts varied with the most falling in north central and northeast Kansas. Salina saw nearly 7″ of snow!
In areas where there is more snow on the ground, temperatures will trend colder overnight. Some patchy fog is also possible.
Tuesday morning starts in the deep freeze. Any fog should quickly erase for more sunshine and light winds.
Looking ahead, we do have an active week. While we’re getting a breather now, sprinkles will be possible Wednesday into Thursday, especially in the northern half of the state. Unsettled skies out west early this week will march in our direction by week’s end.
Two stronger systems are pegged for Friday into Saturday and another wave Sunday into Monday. Both of these waves could bring rain and snow to parts of the state.
The latter wave looks the strongest over the next week. And right now, western Kansas and areas close to the Kansas/Nebraska state line are in the best position for accumulating snow. Lots will change as we approach the weekend so please be sure to check back in with us frequently on-air and online.
