TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The unseasonable temperatures are going away. KSNT Storm Track Chief Meteorologist Matt Miller predicts temperatures will crash overnight coupled with strong northwest winds into Friday, leaving wind chills in the 30s all day Friday.
Considering how warm we’ve been this week and with temperatures trapped in the 40s Friday, that will make it feel nearly 40-degrees cooler Friday afternoon.
Friday’s forecast also brings 20-30mph winds gusting up to 40 mph winds again. Our area will be on the ‘dry side’ of the storm system – meanwhile western Nebraska, the Dakotas and Minnesota will all receive an intense snowstorm/blizzard.
The winds will finally let up by the weekend, but the cold air will already be in place. Temperatures will bottom out by Saturday morning with temperatures into the lower 20s. Temperatures won’t reach the 50s again until Sunday afternoon.
