Warmer today, then colder late Thursday before snow arrives


The gusty wind of Tuesday ushered in drier, more stable air and most spots had decent sunshine. It was actually a pleasant day, and it felt warmer than the high of 41. Thankfully, the chilly breezes diminished after sunset. Clear to mostly clear overnight with low to mid 20s.

Some high cloudiness is streaming across the Rockies and into the Plains. This may filter sunshine on occasion, otherwise partly cloudy and much warmer today as the wind becomes southwesterly.

Greater Topeka Wednesday…
​Highs: 52-56
​Wind: S/SW 15-20mph

High pressure tries to hold on until early to mid-afternoon Thursday when strong cold front could sweep through causing numbers to fall dramatically after 1-3pm. Colder for Valentine’s night. Cupid may have to bundle up a bit if he plans on being on late to celebrate. Snow looks more likely for Friday, and there may be enough snow for some travel troubles by mid to late afternoon. Much of this event could occur in the middle of the day between 10am and 5pm.

Temperatures become very cold for an extended period. Highs of 26-32 can be expected when air pooling in Canada comes rushing through the Plains. Scattered snow showers should be expected Saturday and flurries Sunday with below freezing temps. We may be back to another snow chance in the early part of next week as temps remain well below average for the middle part of February.
