KSStorm.Info Briefing: February 27 & 28, 2022

A dry and warm stretch of weather, with record highs possible, this week. There are signs of a change to cooler and wetter weather as we approach the end of the week and the start of next weekend.
Sunny Skies

The main weather concerns for this week will be how significant the warmup will be for the area, along with a pattern change and associated rain chances beginning Friday.

Temps the rest of the day will get into the mid 50s for highs, with northwest winds around 10 mph. Under clear skies tonight, the area should see temps in the mid 20s for overnight lows. Monday will see scattered high clouds mixed in with the sunshine, as high pressure begins to move into the plains. Temps will be about 8-12 degrees warmer, with highs in the mid 60s.

We begin a four-day run of 70-plus degree temps on Tuesday, with highs in the mid 70s. Wednesday and Thursday look to be the warmest days of the next week, with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

Here are some record highs for Wednesday & Thursday time periods at different reporting stations across the state. The yellow typing indicates records that are in jeopardy.

Wednesday Thursday
Wichita 83, 1901 80, 1994
Hutchinson 70, 2016 74, 2018
Pratt 89, 1904 83, 1910
Dodge City 86, 1904 79, 2018
Goodland 76, 1914 77, 2018
Topeka 83, 1901 81, 1910
Chanute 83, 1901 80, 1994


Attention then turns to the end of the week, where we will have a trough approaching the area from the west. We’ll see a return flow of moisture begin on Thursday and continue Thursday night. Highs on Friday might be too high, especially if we have a low cloud deck develop. Still, should see temps get into the upper 60s to lower 70s for that period. There could be some showers and storms Friday evening into Saturday, with another chance for moisture in the early part of the following week.

All of this continues to be in a state of flux, but it appears likely that we’ll be headed for wetter weather and cooler temps as we head into the second full week of March.
