Turning colder; some snow on the way

By  | 

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that February will be off to a cold start for much of the area. Temperatures will fall below normal with a chance for some light snow showers for northwest Kansas.

Overnight temperatures will be dropping into the 20s and 30s. Thursday afternoon will only warm into the 30s. Best chances for some light snow will be in the northwest, but only a light dusting of snow is expected.

Clouds will hang around into Friday, but the winds turn back to the south, which should help to bring afternoon temperatures back into the 40s and 50s. It will still be rather chilly.

After a milder day Saturday, a stronger push of colder air will arrive by Sunday. Chances for light snow will move in too, but accumulations are expected to be pretty light (if any at all).
