Clouds stay with us overnight, with temperatures dropping back into the upper 20s for a chilly start to Friday. Heading into the afternoon, our next system closes in. In the early afternoon with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s, precipitation starts as rain. Our northern counties stay on the colder side tomorrow, so snow will likely start there quicker. Tomorrow evening and overnight, we see a more widespread changeover to snow across the area as temperatures take a dive.
The area that likely sees the most accumulation is our northeastern corner, where we are looking at roughly 2-4″. Snowfall totals take a dip the further southeast you go, with our central areas picking up an inch or 3, and our southern and extreme western counties seeing 2″ or less. Snow exits the area very early Saturday morning, which starts in the teens. We only make it up near 20 by the afternoon thanks to a set up of arctic air in place, but clouds do look to break some.
Sunday morning starts off in the single digits, but a bit more sunshine lets us return to the 20s again. If you are planning on going to Arrowhead to cheer on the Chiefs, or are planning anything outside, be sure to dress accordingly, because it will still be a cold one.
The next system we are tracking will likely move in Monday afternoon. It brings with it another chance for snow on Monday into Tuesday. Temperatures following this system aren’t looking to take too much of a tumble. Heading into the midweek, we remain in the mid 30s with lows in the upper teens.
