Chilly and breezy this morning, warmer weather this afternoon

We’re tracking a rather chilly start to our Friday, with winds starting to organize and blow in from the south. Now, southerly winds are typically warm winds, but not when temperatures are crashing through the 20s this morning. In fact, any wind from any direction won’t help our cause on mornings like this one. We’re tracking wind chills in the ‘teens’ and 20s through mid-morning. Bundle up!

We’re also tracking a potential weather-maker for late Saturday night/early Sunday morning. A quick-moving system will primarily be a cloud-maker for Northeast Kansas, but a few computer models suggest a brief rain/snow shower. No accumulations are expected and most areas will remain dry into the wee morning hours of Sunday. Just something to keep in mind if you’ll be out late Saturday night – drive accordingly.

On that note, we’ll certainly see more passing cloud cover across the area over the weekend, especially on Sunday. Because of the increased cloud cover, daytime temps will be stuck in the 30s and 40s. Bountiful blue skies are back as early as Monday with tranquil weather continuing straight through next week. We’ll chalk up the first two weeks of this month as ‘dry and mild’ – El Nino continues to dominate the extended and seasonal forecasts. Stay tuned.

Have a great day!
