What We’re Tracking:
- Freezing drizzle and flurries tonight
- Snow chance this weekend with our next system
- Bitter cold air makes its way in
Tonight remains mostly cloudy with a chance for some freezing drizzle and some snow showers as a pretty weak system moves through. Some areas of fog may also develop across northeast Kansas. Mostly cloudy skies stay with us tomorrow as well, with temperatures bumping back into the upper 30s.
During the day on Friday, this weekends system first makes its impact in the form of rain. By the evening, rain transitions to snow through early Saturday. Snowfall amounts are still uncertain with this storm. Models have been picking up on varying speed and intensity of the system, which makes it difficult to forecast. It does appear to be a bit breezier of a system than our last one, with winds gusting 20-30 mph.
It will also get quite a bit colder. We’ll see lows near zero on Sunday with wind chills likely in the negatives. By the afternoon, we only warm up into the teens. After another bitter morning Monday, we slowly warm back up near 30 with clouds on the decrease, but another potential system could impact us as early as Tuesday.
