Sunshine returns on Good Friday, snowflakes possible for Easter Sunday


The stubborn cloud cover will gradually start to break apart and move out throughout the course of the night tonight. Couple the emerging clearer conditions with just a light and variable breeze tonight, and overnight lows will be allowed to bottom out in the 20s and low 30s.

Good Friday is shaping up to see some tranquil weather return to Northeast Kansas. Mostly sunny conditions will go along with a south wind at 5 to 10 mph. The additional sunshine and warm breeze will help temperatures get back into the upper 50s and 60s. 

Partly to mostly cloudy conditions are expected throughout Saturday. Even with some breaks of sunshine, it will be on the slightly cooler side once again with highs only getting into the upper 40s and 50s. Winds will pick up a bit for Saturday, as well. A warm south wind at 10 to 20 mph, will stay just as breezy throughout the day, but will start to shift to become a north wind as a cold front pushes through midday. 

Behind that front, even chillier temperatures will move into the region, just in time for Easter Sunday. Easter will start off cold with morning temperatures in the 20s. Even as the day progresses, temperatures stay cool with high temperatures struggling to get into the 40s. However, with a wind at 5 to 15 mph, it will feel as if its in the 30s throughout the day.

Not only will it be noticeably colder for Easter Sunday, but it also comes along with the chance of a few snowflakes. There is the slight chance of a rain/snow mix Sunday morning into the early afternoon. Best chance of seeing any snowflakes will be for some of the northwestern areas. Some spots may get a brief dusting of snow on the ground, but otherwise it will still be a touch too warm for much of any snow to accumulate on the ground.

Milder temperatures return to start off the work week, but rain chances return late Monday and spill over into Tuesday.
