A fresh pool of cold air is in place. Temperatures today sure took a detour from the last 24 hours. This means overnight we’re all headed back into the deep freeze with lows in the teens and 20s. There will be intervals of stars and clouds.
For Friday, expect more clouds with slivers of sunshine as our next storm system approaches. Highs will be chilly in the 30s as winds remain on the light side.
Clouds thicken Friday night and into Saturday. The weather models are finally coming into consensus for us! Looks like a more southerly track is preferred with this system. This means, most of our viewing area won’t see much snow, if any, from this system.
On Saturday, the moisture will dance along the Kansas/Oklahoma state line and plague points to the south. Initially, it could begin as some light rain or drizzle in southern Kansas before it changes to snow.
Amounts look light anywhere from a trace to an inch mostly southeast of Wichita. A little more is possible along the state line south of Wellington into Missouri.
Please note that more snow and ice will fall to our friends in the Ozarks of Missouri, Arkansas, much of Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle. Travel in these states won’t be the best.
Our weather turns quiet Sunday through next Tuesday. Temperatures will warm before our next system sweeps through on Wednesday and Thursday. We could see rain and potentially some snow with it.
