*Wind Advisory until 7pm for Anderson, Coffey, Douglas, Franklin, Jefferson, Lyon, Morris, Osage and Shawnee counties*
What We’re Tracking:
- Cooler temps ahead
- Spotty mix or possible snow showers Thursday into Friday
- Another chance at showers this weekend
Temperatures will start to cool as our ‘late’ wintry system moves through to our North. Lows will drop into the mid-50s for most of the viewing area with clouds staying with us into the overnight hours.
Thursday is when we will start to see that big cool down as high temperatures will be about 30° cooler as they were today. With that being said, temperatures will struggle to warm up from the overnight lows as we’ll stay in the lower to middle 50s for most with cooler temperatures to our North. This is all due to the snow system that is moving through our northern states where they could potentially get record breaking snow totals. As for the viewing area, along with those dropping temperatures we can expect some showers later in the day with a possibility of some snow showers to the west/northwest although, whatever does fall will be brief as that system will quickly move through Thursday night.
The temperatures will continue to further drop as that system moves through with some places in the viewing area seeing low temperatures just at or below freezing as they wake up on Friday morning. Again, we will struggle to warm up with highs in the upper 40s with maybe some of our southern counties getting close to 50° or better. Clouds will stay with us for the most part but there is a chance that we could see some peaks of sunshine throughout the day.
As the weekend nears, temperatures will continue to remain on the colder side as both Saturday and Sunday only look to make it up into the middle to upper 50s. Sunday we could see our next chance of showers as well with temperatures potentially reaching near 60°.
These cooler temperatures won’t stay with us forever as there looks to be another warming trend ahead starting next week.
