After the last two weeks of solid cold weather (which is almost over,) allow me to say that spring comes in 30 days. Of course, if you’re reading this, you probably have a vested interest in the weather, so meteorological spring begins in 10 days: potato, potatoh.  The whole point of this opening paragraph is to get you thinking warm thoughts.

And speaking of warm, our climb from the freezer continues, albeit slowly. With a mix of clouds and sunshine, especially in areas with a deeper snowpack, we’ll see highs through the 20s. Winds will vary in direction but remain under 10 mph. Skies will clear out tonight, with temperatures ranging from 8-15 degrees.

The warmup continues Friday with highs from the lower 30s to the lower 40s under a partly to mostly sunny sky. Pretty benign weather continues through the weekend, with temperatures warming into the 40s and 50s.

Tuesday Night Winter Storm

The third and final storm in our historic cold wave came and went with minor impacts Tuesday night into yesterday morning. Southeast Kansas took the brunt of the storm, with 2-4 inches of snow falling.

Here’s the breakdown of the snow across the state:

Combined with the snow from the Sunday storm, some places in Southeast Kansas have snow depths near one foot.

What do these mean?


Good chances of rain begin in southwest Kansas this morning and spread north and east throughout the day. Some thunderstorm activity with small hail is possible, but severe weather is not expected. Widespread rainfall totals of 1/4 to 3/4 inch are possible in western Kansas.
