Temperatures have turned a warmer direction today. This pales in comparison to what’s ahead tomorrow. How about the 70s? Not the decade…but the temps? Winds will be stronger which means our fire threat remains elevated.
Winter makes a strong comeback on Friday. Temps will fall and rain, a wintry mix and snow will develop throughout the day. Location will be important along with how quickly the atmosphere can bring any moisture to the ground. The farther south you live, temps will be warmer which puts this area in a cold rain.
Farther north in the pink, that’s where you’ll see the change to a wintry mix that includes freezing rain and sleet. The blue indicates the snow.
Accumulations look light and best seen the closer you get to I-70. Anywhere from a trace to 1″ is possible for spots in the light blue. Darker shades of blue are where you will find 2″ to 4″ of snow Friday into the overnight.
There is another storm lined up for Sunday. This will bring us rain, but I could also see some snow mixing in closer to the Kansas/Nebraska state line. Temps over the next week will continue to shift back and forth between warm and chilly. Join me tonight for a closer look at these approaching storm systems and what you’ll see at your house. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
