- Comfortably mild for Wednesday and most of Valentine’s Day
What a crazy week we just experience. After huge temperature fluctuations the week before, ice became the issue with more delays, postponements and cancellations to work around. It seems like we haven’t had a solid week of uninterrupted schedules since before the winter holidays.
Moisture crept into the region Saturday night into Sunday for light icing in spots. A Winter Weather Advisory was posted for much of northeast Kansas through early Sunday morning. The passing boundary pulled more chilly air into the area. This combined with a significant moisture push from the south, which might lead to even more freezing rain in the early hours of Monday.
Expect a cloudy, breezy and very chilly day with possible freezing rain or wintry mix early, then cold rain after 10am to noon. Light rain may continue at times into this evening.
Greater Topeka Monday…
Wind: E/NE 10-15
The midweek forecast looks warmer. After a blustery day Tuesday, temps should rebound nicely as a south/southwest wind kicks in. Temperatures will likely reach the low to mid 50s for Wednesday and Thursday with partly cloudy conditions.
Late Thursday might have a big temp drop. A strong cold front could sweep through causing numbers to fall throughout the afternoon. Light snow should form and that activity could take us through early Friday. There may be enough snow for minor accumulations and some early travel troubles.
Temperatures will be very chilly through the Friday to Sunday stretch. Highs of 26-32 can be expected, and after a relatively quiet weekend, we may be back to more snow chances in the early part of the following week.
