Warmer temps late week will make more potholes


​Most of the accumulating snowfall for late Tuesday into Wednesday happened between 6pm and 1am. Some spots had light freezing drizzle and light snow as the system gradually pulled away.

Latest snow…
Corning: 6.0”
Belleville: 5.0”
Horton: 4.5”
Topeka: 3.2”
Manhattan: 2.3”
Emporia: 1.9”

The system left very quickly and plowing made it much better for early travelers. Clouds decreased through the mid to late afternoon and roads became much, much better.

The melting snow has added moisture so there may be areas of freezing fog early today. The sky may end up partly sunny to overcast as the day progresses…especially south. Wind should be southeast in direction.

Greater Topeka Thursday…
Highs: 40-45
Wind: SE 10-15

Thankfully, the prolonged period of very cold air is over. The next round of precipitation arrives Friday. Moisture increases and light rain develops. Friday night into much of Saturday could be wet with period of rain and possible thunderstorms. By late Saturday, the northwest part of our viewing area may get rain changing to snow with possible mix toward Manhattan and Topeka. Some snow to the west/northwest could be heavy.

More sunshine should visit northeast Kansas on Sunday and Monday before a quick, and somewhat weak, system blows across into midweek for a chance of snow showers and colder air.
