We’re tracking some tranquil weather as Northeast Kansas celebrates St. Patrick’s Day. Expect daytime temperatures in the 50s, with highs along and south of I-70…in the lower 60s. Clouds will increase as today unfolds – generally, a mix of sunshine and clouds. Much cooler weather will move in as early as tomorrow; big changes as we wrap-up winter.
We’re tracking another weather-maker that will pass through our neck of the woods, as early as tonight. Clouds will win out by this evening, with chilly rain showers following soon after. At this point, it looks like areas of rain will move from northwest to southeast – starting in N. Central Kansas by midnight. As temperatures plummet tonight, wet snowflakes will likely mix in. However, we do NOT expect any snowfall accumulations. If you’re up late tonight or up early tomorrow morning – don’t be surprised if you see some of those flakes flying around. MOST of the precipitation will fall as a chilly rain.
Friday will be the coldest day of the week, as we track daytime temperatures in the 30s and 40s. We officially close out the season of winter on Saturday. Northeast Kansas should remain dry with a mix of sunshine and clouds. Warmer weather will be returning, though. The first day of spring is Sunday – expect high temperatures around 60°. But, by this time next week – we’re tracking high back up above 70°. We can already hear the birds chirping.
Have a great day!
