Chilly sunshine today, dropping temperatures for Thursday


After waking up to a mix of ice and snow outside, sunshine has returned across northeast Kansas to help melt some of that away. Temperatures won’t help at all too much in terms of melting as highs range from the upper 20s northeast, to the low to mid 30s southwest.

More clouds begin to filter right back in for tonight as overnight lows bottom out in the upper teens and lower 20s. 

Some clearing of the clouds will happen as the day progresses on Thursday, but temperatures won’t be on the increase even as some sunshine emerges. Highs in the 20s happen during the morning hours of Thursday, with temperatures falling into the low 20s and then teens during the afternoon. 

Winds will be on the increase, as well. By the afternoon, northwest winds will be sustained at 10 to 20 mph. That will put wind chills down into the single digits, and even a few degrees below zero, as the afternoon drags on. 

A mostly clear sky will be apparent for Thursday night, to go along with a lighter wind. That will allow temperatures to bottom out in the single digits to right around 0°. Even though the wind won’t be nearly as strong as earlier in the day, a light breeze around 5 mph will still be even to drop wind chills below zero for early Friday morning. 

A mix of sun and clouds is on tap for the day on Friday as high temperatures get back into the 30s.

A couple of hit-or-miss snow flurries will be possible for Saturday, but it won’t result in any accumulation. Otherwise, both Saturday and Sunday will see a mix of sun and clouds during the day. 20s and low 30s for highs on Saturday turns into upper 30s and 40s come Sunday.

A slightly more promising chance for some passing snow showers rolls through on Monday.
