The air is dry and frigid now, but expect snow or wintry mix overnight and early Friday


Expect delays or cancellations early Friday, then we should get more sun this weekend

The relatively mild conditions have disappeared. Temperatures will be much colder than what we’ve experienced since the weekend. Sky conditions may be clear to partly cloudy early Thursday with increasing clouds as the afternoon progresses.

Tonight into early Friday is our biggest concern with possible snow, sleet and freezing rain. Temps likely stay below freezing until 10-11am so we should have mostly rain after that.

*Winter Weather Advisory across all of northeast Kansas from midnight to noon Friday for snow, sleet and freezing rain.

Greater Topeka Thursday
Highs: 30-35
Wind: E/NE 10-20
Wind Chills: 0 to 10 early and 15 to 20 this afternoon

Arctic air invades Friday night into Saturday. It will turn much colder with sunny to partly cloudy conditions Saturday to Monday. We may see lows in the single digits and teens with highs in the upper 20s to low 30s over the weekend. The bitter air mass will build and linger through Tuesday. This upcoming “deep freeze” will be our longest cold snap of the season so far.

We should be precipitation free until slightly warmer temperatures hit after midweek. There could be a few rain showers Wednesday night into Thursday of next week.
