Wind stays strong with possible snow showers

​*High Wind Warning until 7pm for Cloud and Republic counties*

*Wind Advisory continues until 7pm for the remaining counties of northeast Kansas*

A large upper disturbance entered the Central and Southern Plains for this midweek rain event. Tuesday had rainy periods in advance of the system. Scattered thunderstorms moved through Tuesday night to make us think that perhaps spring has started.

Substantial rain and strong wind hit early Wednesday. Showers lingered into the afternoon, but the gusty wind made headlines with speeds reaching 40-60mph. Damage was reported in several spots as a result.

Wind will stay very strong Thursday with the vigorous low just north of us. Expect southwest wind of 20-35 early, then it should be more of a west/northwest direction later today. Temperatures will be much cooler and that wind will make it seem so much colder. Scattered snow showers and patchy light mix will be possible as lingering moisture and instability rotates across the region on the back side of the departing storm system

Greater Topeka Thursday...
​Highs: 38-42
​Wind: W/NW 20-35 and gusty
​Wind Chills: 25-30

Friday is the beginning of another pleasant stretch of weather for northeast Kansas. A partly cloudy sky will give us more sun, although it may still seem chilly to most.

We get a ton of sun this weekend with warmer temps. It looks like a great period from Saturday to Tuesday with prevalent sunshine, mid 50s, and light wind. Too bad Spring Break will be over, but at least great weather should make getting back into routine a little easier.
