Flurries and cold breezes today; snow chances this weekend


It will continue to stay on the cloudy side across northeast Kansas for today, but a few flurries will be possible in spots. Little to no snow accumulation is expected out of those flurries though.

The lack of sunshine throughout the day will go along with a chilly north wind, sustained at about 10 to 20 mph. That will keep high temperatures stuck in the teens and low 20s for today, but afternoon wind chills will be in the single digits and teens. 

A few breaks in the clouds will be possible for tonight, but it will still be mostly cloudy overhead. That will temperatures from plummeting too far down, with lows in the single digits and teens. The wind will lighten up a bit, as well. Even so, a light north wind around 5 mph will be enough to drop down wind chills into the single digits for most, if not a couple degrees below zero further north, by daybreak on Thursday.

A partly to mostly cloudy start to the day on Thursday will see that cloud cover gradually decrease, allowing for more sunshine to emerge by the afternoon. That will help high temperatures warm up slightly with highs in the 20s and low 30s.

More of a noticeable warm-up is on tap for Friday though. A mix of sun and clouds will go along with highs in the 30s for the northern half of the region, with low 40s for the southern half. 

There is the chance for some passing snow showers late Friday night into Saturday morning. A slightly better chance for snow rolls in Saturday night, and lingers on into Sunday morning.

Otherwise, both days of the weekend will be mainly cloudy with colder temperatures. Some central and southern areas may be able to break into the low 20s for highs on Saturday, but temperatures don’t look to break out of the teens across northeast Kansas come Sunday.
