*Winter Weather Advisory until 9am for Anderson, Coffey, Douglas, Franklin, Lyon and Osage counties*
Many areas with weekend snow started Monday near zero with wind chills near -10.A boundary only got so far in the afternoon, meaning most locations south had highs around 50 degrees while communities near the Nebraska border could barely get to 15 or 20. Tuesday almost started the exact same way, but most places had lower high temps and a persistent north/northeast wind.
Today, the story is to be mainly cloudy with patchy freezing drizzle early. This should be spotty and very light. Wind should stay just high enough to add a significant chill. This is also the beginning of a much colder pattern going forward.
Greater Topeka Wednesday…
Wind: N 12-22
Expect partly cloudy, breezy and chilly conditions Thursday ahead of another low pressure system. This one may impact our area late Friday with some light mix or scattered snow showers. Right now, it looks like we may see a dusting to half inch at best.
Again, prepare for a long period below freezing. We may see temps in the mid 30s Friday, otherwise very cold through at least the middle of next week. Another light snow may occur Sunday, but the big story is how long it stays so cold….especially in the start of a month that people expect to be warmer.
