KSStorm.Info Briefing: March 7 & 8, 2022

Sunny skies and seasonal temps the next couple of days, but there's another chance for cold and snow as we end the work week. Temps will rebound as we head for the time change this weekend.
Sunny Skies

Quiet and tranquil weather will continue for the next couple of days, which will allow the snow that fell Sunday (6.5″ in Lyons and 5″ in Salina!) to melt some, and fire crews to get an upper hand on the Cottonwood Complex fire east of Hutchinson. Attention then turns to the middle and end of the week, where we’ll have another intrusion of cold air and the chance of snow for portions of the area.

Clear skies will continue overnight with light winds, lows will fall into the upper teens to lower 20s. Tuesday will see lots of sunshine, but highs may not be as warm as forecast, due to the snowpack. Will go with highs in the mid 40s, with temps near 50 for Wednesday. Winds will be light Tuesday and Tuesday night, but will turn to the southeast and become a tad frisky for Wednesday, gusting to 20 mph.

A cold front will move southeast during the day Wednesday, but slowing as it does, in response to a low pressure moving out from the Four Corners region. There are some indications the front could stall in the vicinity of the Kansas Turnpike late Wednesday night.  After midnight, as the system begins to throw moisture over the cold air, we could see areas of rain and snow develop.

Snow could continue into Thursday morning, with the best chances of that happening along and north of US 56 highway. Some accumulations are possible, but this is all dependent on the track of the storm, which still has some uncertainty in it. After a break during the afternoon and evening hours, more snow is likely Thursday night as the second system tracks near or south of the area. Again, accumulations are possible, but are dependent on the track. Snow chances continue into the first half of Friday, before ending during the afternoon hours. Stay tuned for updates on this as we move through the week.

One thing is for sure, the cold will ultimately come back. Highs Thursday and Friday will be in the 20s and 30s, but will moderate this weekend as we head for the time change.
