Weekend changes include some snow

By  | 

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that after a milder start to the weekend, a cold front will plow through the state Saturday night. Temperatures will drop and chances for light snow will return to the area early Sunday.

Saturday morning will start out with lows in the 20s. Afternoon temperatures will climb into the 50s, with a few low 60s on the way for western Kansas.

The next cold front should be through most of the state by early Sunday. Gusty north winds and Arctic air will settle over the state Sunday too. Best snow chances will be over the northern half of the state, but accumulation will be under 1 inch.

Another chance for wintry weather should arrive by Tuesday. Most of the state will have a chance for snow, with a rain/snow mix in southeast Kansas.
