We’re tracking a seasonal day with highs in the middle/upper 40s. As promised, the sunshine is back after a few cloud-filled days. However, the northerly winds will dictate our temperature forecast over the next two days. Cooler air will continue to be funneled into Northeast Kansas from the Northern Plains. In fact, the northerly winds will persist through Thursday. Speaking of – expect tomorrow to be the ‘coldest’ day of the week, with daytime temperatures in the 30s and 40s. Mostly sunny skies will continue through the upcoming weekend. Highs will soar into the middle/upper 60s on Saturday before we track another cold front on Sunday – slicing temperatures back to seasonal standards just in time for March.
We’re also tracking the SLIGHT chance for a passing snow shower or flurry, late tonight. A quick-moving weather-maker will pass through our neck of the woods this evening, sparking an isolated rain shower across N. Central Kansas prior to midnight. However, as temperatures plummet this evening/overnight – those raindrops will change over to snowflakes as the small storm system dives south/east. If you’re up late (between 1a and 4a) you’ll likely see a few flakes flying around. No accumulation is expected.
Other than these meager chances for rain/snow – our next BEST chance for precipitation will hold off until the middle of next week. One of the biggest storms in weeks should be right on top of us as early as next Tuesday night. As of now, Northeast Kansas looks to be on the warm side of the storm – so rain is expected by next Wednesday. However, that potential storm is still some 7 days away. We’ll continue to track it and fine-tune the forecast as it gets closer. Stay tuned.
Have a great day!
