The next snow into the weekend will have much colder air at work. It may start as rain to ice, but when it goes to snow it should be like feathers with air pockets. This creates a snow that is easier to remove, but it can lead to blowing and drifting problems if the wind is high.
Today is about some melting of what we received last Friday and Saturday. We have only reached the low 30s recently so everything is still the way it was. Fog may be thick for some early, then mostly sunny and warmer conditions should prevail as we attempt to clear out substantially.
Greater Topeka Monday…
Dense Fog Advisory until 9am
Wind: SW 10-15
A weak boundary may come across Wednesday for more clouds. There may be some light freezing rain, freezing drizzle and sleet Wednesday evening into early Thursday. Thursday’s recovery is decent for partly sunny conditions.
A large system starts to impact the area with a big chance for rain/ice/snow on Friday. This likely doesn’t stay rain as long as the previous event did. Snow might be potentially wet and slushy through Friday afternoon. Accumulations likely double the previous system’s numbers through Friday night and Saturday with much colder air surging in. We will need to monitor not just totals, but also determine how much blowing and drifting could occur for the travel impact. Wind on Saturday may stay between 20-35mph. You may need to alter travel plans for late Friday through Saturday, which certainly means leaving earlier and staying longer.

Foggy early, then some sunshine may eat away at some of the snow cover…
