Much cooler today with rain and snow mix by Wednesday night
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Meteorologist Jake Dunne says it is a cooler morning across Kansas with wake-up temperatures in the 20s and lower 30s. The afternoon will follow suit with highs in the lower 50s, or 10-15 degrees cooler than Monday.
Our next chance of moisture will arrive on Wednesday. However, with milder air in place, we are looking at a chance of rain during the afternoon followed by a rain/snow mix into the night. The precipitation should be light, scattered in nature, and major travel troubles are not expected.
Another fast-moving system will sweep through on Thursday with snow showers and even colder temperatures, but this one also looks relatively weak with little, or no accumulation expected.
Looking ahead… after a warmer weekend in the 50s, possibly lower 60s on Sunday, a stronger storm system with heavier rain and/or snow may move through the area on Monday into Valentine’s Day.
