Snowfall amounts today across portions of central Kansas ranged from 1″ to 5″. Parts of NW Kansas and SW Nebraska take the cake with totals ranging from 8″ to as much as a foot of snow!
Right now, the system is wrapping up as it tracks east. The greatest lift associated with the most snow, sleet and rain is now shifting away from our viewing area.
Winter Weather Advisories have been extended until 9 PM to account for the leftover mix.
As we go through the evening and overnight, temps will drop below freezing. Any surface that hasn’t dried out nor been treated, will be slick! Please use caution if driving overnight and Friday morning as black ice is a concern.
Skies will clear on Friday. Temperatures will be COLD! Highs will be in the 30s and with a stiff north/northwesterly wind, it will feel like the 20s.
Winds turn out of the warm south by Saturday. This gives us a boost to the 40s for highs over the weekend.
There is a fast-moving system on track for Sunday/Monday. Temperatures will be important because a rain/snow shower mixture is possible, favoring the southern half of the state. Any accumulation appears to be light with heavier amounts in the Texas Panhandle.
Next week, I think you’ll love where we’re headed as highs return to the upper 50s and lower 60s by mid-week!
