*A wind chill advisory will be in effect for Nemaha and Brown counties from 9 pm tonight until 9 am Thursday morning.*

Arctic air will continue to graze across northeast Kansas for the remainder of the day. High temperatures will only get into the single digits and low teens.

With that temperatures already as cold as they are, it won’t take much of a breeze to add that extra cold bite to the air. Northeast and east winds will only be around 5 mph for today, but that’ll keep wind chills around zero, and a few degrees below it, for the rest of the day. 

Today will see the chance of a some passing flurries and light snow showers here and there, especially to the north and northeast. However, little to no snow accumulation is expected. Otherwise, more sunshine to the south and southwest will turn more into a partly to mostly cloudy sky further to the north and northeast. 

A partly to mostly cloudy sky sticks around for tonight as another cold night sets up. Low temperatures will bottom out right around 0° and in the single digits. A southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph will continue to bring down wind chills even further. Wind chills will range from around 0° to the south and southeast, and get as low as -15° as you head to the northeast. 

After a bitterly cold start to the day Thursday morning, temperatures will finally startt to rebound as this cold blast pushes farther away. High temperatures will primarily max out in the 30s, but some cooler 20s will be possible to the northeast. Some low 40s can’t be entirely ruled out for some southern areas, either.

A mix of sun and clouds for Thursday, turns into an increase of cloud cover for Friday. Even as the clear sky gets overran by clouds, high temperatures will still be able to crack into the 40s by Friday afternoon.

Even milder temperatures move in for the weekend with widespread 50s. However, there will be the slight chance of some drizzle and light rain early on Saturday, and then once again on Sunday.
