We’re still tracking the largest weather-maker of the season across the Great Plains, today. Most of Northeast Kansas is seeing rain. However, N. Central Kansas (Cloud, Republic, Washington Counties) is getting clipped by bands of heavy snow. It wouldn’t be a Groundhog Day without wacky weather. The rain across a large chunk of our area will continue to taper off as the day progresses. In fact, most of the daylight hours will remain dry. Skies will become mostly sunny along and south of I-70 with breezy easterly winds gusting over 30mph at times. Bands of moderate/heavy snow should stick around N. Central Kansas, almost all day – just outside the viewing area. Those areas are still on track for some 6″+ of snow today.
Colder and more breezy weather will move in, as this large quick-moving weather-maker moves out. We’re tracking the coldest day of the week tomorrow, with daytime temps in the 20s and 30s. However, wind chills will make it feel like the ‘teens’ most of the day with howling northwest winds. The sunshine will be back as early as Wednesday afternoon – continuing clear skies straight through the upcoming weekend. High temperatures will also be on the slow and steady increase through this time period. Expect highs pushing 50° by Saturday and Sunday.
Have a great day!
