Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a strong cold front will plow through Kansas overnight and early Thursday, sending temperatures back down to finish off the week. The chances for snow, however, won't arrive until the weekend.
Skies will be turning mostly cloudy with gusty winds turning to the north. Wind chills early Thursday will be down in the teens for a big chunk of Kansas. High temperatures will only warm to around 30 degrees.
We can expect more clouds again Friday with cold temperatures continuing. Highs will likely stay in the 30s with east winds dropping under 15 mph.
Best chances for snow in Kansas will come Saturday afternoon. Some accumulation (a couple of inches) look possible for areas south of Wichita. The metro area could get about an inch of snow.
