Flakes will fly soon

By  | 

Meteorologist Mark Larson says it'll feel like, and even look like, winter through week's end with Arctic air hanging around through Friday along with snow showers and flurries tonight into Thursday.

Look for increasing clouds Wednesday with highs in the 20s. Winds will not be as strong as they were Tuesday but wind chills will be in the single-digits and teens most of the day. Bundle-up!

We're expecting a wide swath, or band, of light snow and flurries to move into northern Kansas Wednesday night, then sink into the southern half of our state by Thursday morning. Most of us will simply see a dusting but parts of northern and western Kansas could see an inch or more.

Snow will move-out Thursday afternoon but the bitter cold air will stick around through Saturday followed by warmer temps Sunday through early next week.
