Teachman’s Take: Rain first, then snow this weekend?

Weather Blog

Clouds are thickening right now and rain showers will soon develop out west.  

As temperatures continue to cool, a few snowflakes will be possible in northwest Kansas and southwestern Nebraska.  No accumulation is expected. 

This disturbance will track east overnight and bring light rain to the rest of the state.  

Rainfall accumulations will be on the light side, generally a tenth to a quarter of an inch.  An isolated spot could see half of an inch.  

This wave will depart early Friday afternoon and we’ll see some late-day sunshine out west!

Temperatures tomorrow will be in the 50s and 60s.

This weekend, the remnants of Tropical Storm Sergio will stay in Oklahoma and northern Texas, where the heaviest rain will fall.  We will  have some rain, primarily for the southern half of the state.

Moisture will remain on Sunday as a cold front works this way.  This is when I anticipate rain to switch to snow.  A lot will depend on how much moisture is left as the colder air takes over.  

At this point, I do see some accumulating snow in western Kansas. 

Parts of central Kansas will also see a few of these flakes.
