Temps look much better for the week ahead


​Finally a day of solid sunshine Sunday. Friday had chilly rain from time to time and it looked like October. Saturday morning’s wet snow occurred as discussed. It didn’t stick for most, but areas to the far northwest received 1-3 inches of accumulation. The wind was high, the temps were very chilly and the snowflakes were huge as many were sticking together on their way to the surface. Clouds decreased on schedule through the afternoon.

Yesterday was so pretty, but it was a very cold last morning of March. Temperatures in the 6-9am period were between 21-27 degrees across much of northeast Kansas for frost and hard freeze. Highs only made it to near 50, but the days ahead should be much warmer.

Today should start with a clear to partly cloudy sky. Clouds may increase slightly to make it variably cloudy to partly sunny as the day progresses.

Greater Topeka Monday…
​Highs: 57-60
​Wind: S/SW 10-20

The midweek forecast has gradual changes as weak disturbances come move toward us and temps rise a bit more. Moisture will increase and clouds may start blocking more sun. By Wednesday, widely scattered showers are possible and temps will remain in the 60s. Breezes could also get a little stronger too.

Late Thursday and Friday should give us more sunshine as temps approach 70 degrees. Another low pressure system may impact our region late in the upcoming weekend. Sprinkles may hit late Saturday or Saturday night, plus we’ll start looking at the timing and likelihood of showers on Sunday.
