From sunny to partly cloudy, we’ve had quiet conditions across the state today. This evening, there’s just enough cloud cover to give us another beautiful sunset. Here’s a glimpse if you missed it!
Temperatures have been divided from where the sun’s warmed the ground to the snow keeping a chill over areas hit the hardest from Sunday’s blizzard.
Overnight, temperatures will settle into a cold rhythm below freezing in the 20s. The most bitter readings will be in areas with snow cover.
Winds stir up from the south/southwest on Wednesday. Temperatures keep warming. We will see more 50s and 60s out west with much cooler conditions where snow will take a little longer to melt.
While a few sprinkles are possible in northern Kansas on Thursday, there are much better chances for rain and snow Friday into Saturday with one system and then Sunday into Monday with a second.
The first system for Friday/Saturday looks to produce mostly rain for us. Best bets for some light snow will be in extreme northwest Kansas and southwest Nebraska. Amounts at this time don’t look that high.
While this moves out early on Saturday, a stronger system approaches Sunday evening and into Monday. This has more cold air to work with and a greater chance for more widespread snowfall accumulation. The current track has the most snow falling in northern and western Kansas. Wichita doesn’t look to see that much, but this storm could easily shift by just a hair to the north or south, drastically changing how much snow we see.
