Main forecast challenges for tonight into Thursday continue to be temps, as well as the chances for light snow.
Cloudy skies will be on the docket overnight as we see an upper disturbance come out from the desert southwest. We’ll see renewed development of precip in Oklahoma and by daybreak Thursday, areas of snow should begin to break out in southern Kansas. Lows overnight will be in the upper single digits. North to northeast winds won’t be as strong as they were this morning, however, any breeze will knock wind chills into the 0 to -10 range.
Areas of light snow will continue into the day Thursday, with precip ending from southwest to northeast during the afternoon hours. This snow will be a little window-dressing to all the cold air we’ve had, with accumulations of an inch or less expected for the listening area. Highs will struggle to get to 20 degrees, with north winds continuing at 8-12 mph, wind chills will run in the 0-10 degree range. Skies become clear Thursday night and it’ll be another cold one, with temps in the single digits. Winds will become light, so there shouldn’t be any wind chill problems for Friday morning.
The warmup starts Friday, as temps get into the lower 30s. Friday night looks to be our last cold night, with temps near 10. We’ll be warmer for Saturday, with highs in the mid 40s. Sunday looks even warmer with temps in the mid 50s.
We’ll spend much of early next week with sunny skies and temps in the upper 50s to lower 60s. There are signs that widespread 70s could be on the table for the first full weekend of March. Precip wise, chances look fairly scant after tomorrow’s snow chance.
