Frigid start and scattered flurries may visit later today


​Temperatures on Thursday started in the mid to upper 20s, then we plunged to the low and mid teens by sunset. The sky was mostly cloudy to variably cloudy until the strong cold front blew through. North wind was somewhat problematic, and wind chill indices through the afternoon were between zero to 10.

Early morning temps are almost subzero and “feels like” numbers are ranging from minus 5 to negative 15. Please limit prolonged exposure. Mixed clouds and sun should be expected today with strong west/southwest breezes. There may actually be a few flurries or random snow showers too.

Greater Topeka Friday…
Highs: 32-36
Wind: W/SW 15-25

Saturday looks partly sunny to overcast with slightly warmer temps. Sunday looks mostly sunny and it will easily be our warmer day and the highest we go for at least another week. Clouds increase late Sunday and Sunday night. That pattern should melt ice and snow. The increasing surface moisture from melting may lead to developing fog into the work week. Light snow could occur for early Monday. Right now, accumulation should be minimal and brief but we will monitor closely.
