Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that after a springlike Thursday, temperatures will be headed down for Friday and the weekend. Snow chances will also be increasing.
The cold front will move through Kansas early Friday, shifting the winds to the north. We will wake up to temperatures in the 20s and 30s, but they won't be going up through the day. Afternoon temperatures will mostly be in the 20s with gusty north winds. Feels like temperatures will be down in the teens.
Saturday starts cloudy with snow chances increasing as the day continues on. It will start in central and northern Kansas, then gradually spread south into the night. Some 2-5" amounts are expected along and north of I-70, with less than 2" expected farther south. Temperatures will stay in the teens and 20s Saturday afternoon.
A much better travel day will return on Sunday with sunshine in the afternoon.
