Stronger gusts from the south/southwest pushed our temperatures mostly to the 50s today. But, there were a few 60s and 70s throw in the mix!
Changes will arrive overnight. The winds will shift from the north by dawn. Temperatures as the sun is coming up will be in the 30s and 40s.
We should be able to accelerate to the 50s and 60s, briefly, before the true cold surges south tomorrow afternoon. The highs you see here will happen early in the day. By afternoon, we’ll drop to the 40s and 50s.
Colder air will keep working in our direction Thursday night. As our next storm system arrives, freezing rain and sleet will be possible. This system will cool further, producing more snow for areas near and north of I-70 with a mix to the south.
Snowfall amounts will be highest northeast of a line from Salina to Emporia. Could see a trace to an inch across southern Kansas with an inch or two in the northwest part of the state.
More active weather is in store over the weekend and into early next week. Late Saturday and into early Sunday, another wintry mix is possible followed by snow on Monday.
