Even though you may not have felt it today, our warming trend has begun. Temps are much warmer in southern Kansas than the northern half of the state. It was significantly colder in areas where there is still snow on the ground. For areas not affected by the snow, temps warmed into the 30s and 40s (50s in extreme SW KS!).
We’ll be able to shake off more of this chill on Thursday. This will be our warmest day of the week with highs in the 50s and 60s. It also comes with a bit of a price — the winds. They will be gusty!
Changes are in store by the weekend. Snow that starts in the northern Plains will gradually sink southward to Kansas by Saturday.
Northern Kansas stands the best shot for the majority of the snow — AGAIN! Southern Kansas will get less.
Temperatures will continue to ebb and flow over the next week. After Saturday’s bitterly cold shot with highs stuck below freezing, temps will thaw next Sunday through Wednesday. Join me tonight on KSN News, I’ll have a detailed look at this weekend’s storm along with early snowfall amounts. – Chief Meteorologist Lisa Teachman
