Morning wintry mix, rain chance by afternoon

 

The winter weather advisory has already been cancelled for all of the effected counties, except for Brown and Nemaha counties. Temperatures are running away from that freezing mark of 32°, and road temperatures are following along with that warm up.

 

Clouds build in late Saturday into early Sunday. Saturday evening looks to be dry, but some drizzle and freezing could develop after midnight through daybreak. Low temperatures look to happen shortly after midnight as temperatures won’t drop much under the blanket of cloud cover. Mid to upper 20s around midnight will cross back into the low to mid 30s by daybreak on Sunday.

With temperatures expected to near the freezing mark of 32°, freezing drizzle/rain and sleet are fair game for early Sunday morning. Ice accumulations will be below a tenth of an inch, but even a thin glaze of ice could provide slick and slippery spots on the roadways. But by noon, temperatures will be far enough from 32° that everything will transition over to rain.

The best chance of meaningful rain will be for the eastern and southern portions of Northeast Kansas. Even when spots are dry, sunshine will be limited through most of the day on Sunday. Even so, Sunday will begin a gradual warm-up as temperatures will max out in the upper 30s and 40s. Best chance of 40 degrees weather will be for the western half of the region.

Sunshine and milder weather returns for the first half of the upcoming work week as temperatures get back into the upper 40s and  50s. A potential storm system late on Wednesday into Thursday looks to bring along a new snow chance, but will also slash temperatures back into the 20s and 30s.
