What We Are Tracking:
- Partly cloudy tonight.
- Single digit lows for Saturday morning.
- A round of accumulating snow by late Saturday night into Sunday.
What to Expect:
Expect partly cloudy skies as we head throughout the evening and overnight period. Gradual clesring will take place throughout Saturday morning. We'll be mostly sunny for the bulk of Saturday. The real weather story for the weekend is: WINTER. Lows will be in the single digits for the start of Saturday, when you factor in the brisk north wind, winds chills will be anywhere from -2 to 8 degrees throughout the day. Bundle up!
We're watching a winter storm make it's way into our neck of the woods Saturday night into Sunday. Watch the cloud cover increase Saturday evening, as snow showers move in behind the increasing cloud shield. At this point it looks like a general 1-3 inches of that textbook powdery snow. If nothing else, it will certainly set a festive scene all across Northeast Kansas.
"Warmer" air will finally start to track back into Northeast Kansas next week! Monday will be cold, but temps will be near freezing Tuesday & Wednesday...and above freezing by Thursday; baby steps!
Have a great night!
