We’ll continue to warm up on our Thursday, reaching the 40s this afternoon. This will help in melting off more of the snow and slush on the ground. As it does so, you may notice some extra potholes on roads while driving around, so be on the lookout. We look to continue seeing highs in the low 40s through Saturday, but we don’t quite break above normal for daytime highs.

Friday we will see some drizzle develop early, which will transition to some scattered showers tomorrow evening and into the overnight hours. As the more potent part of the system pushes through, we could get some thunderstorms and heavier showers entering northeast Kansas from the west in the late morning hours. They will work their way through in the early afternoon. As temperatures drop behind the cold front, we’ll see a transition to snow later in the afternoon. Strongest snow is expected for our northern counties, but high northerly wind will cause any snow to blow around, which could cause some concerns for visibility.

Snow will end by Sunday, but you will notice colder air has returned. Highs to wrap up the weekend sink back into the 30s with possible wind chills in the 20s. We’ll see the colder air remain behind with temperatures remaining below normal through the middle of the week.
