First day of a gradual warm-up, but still chilly

Today marked the first day of a gradual warm-up we’ve been tracking, which will last through the middle portion of the week. Most of us topped out in the 30s today, but a few spots actually maxed out in the 40s. Even looking ahead to tonight, it won’t be nearly as cold as it was the past couple of nights. Most of us will see overnight lows in the 20s.

Breezy southerly winds didn’t make it feel exactly what the air temperatures were suggesting today, and that will be a similar story for tomorrow. Even though more of northeast Kansas will break into the 40s for high temperatures tomorrow, southerly winds at 10 to 15 mph will keep wind chills primarily in the 30s. We’ll warm up to near 50 degree weather for Tuesday and Wednesday, before our temperatures take a nose dive back into the 20s and 30s starting on Thursday.

In terms of precipitation, we’ll be mainly quiet through the work/school week with just a mix of sun and clouds. There is the slight chance for a few morning showers on Tuesday, but if rain were to fall, it would happen along our eastern counties. We’ll be keeping a close eye on next weekend though. Model guidance is suggesting snow, and possibly even freezing rain, Friday through Sunday. However, there’s a still a lot of uncertainty in that forecast, so make sure to stay updated with us here on KSNT as we get a better grasp on the weather conditions you can expect for next weekend.
