Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that as the snow moves away, more cold weather is coming down from the north and right into Kansas. It will be our first blast of Arctic air for the season.
Clouds will begin to clear from western Kansas, allowing temperatures to fall into the 20s across the west. Low temperatures in central and eastern Kansas will be in the upper 20s. Expect light winds.
Friday afternoon will have sunshine but more cold air is expected to dive into the area. Highs will stay in the 30s with a brisk northwest wind through much of the day.
Cold temperatures (lows in the teens and 20s) will be quite common Saturday morning, but as a south wind cranks up for the area during the day, highs will rebound into the 40s and 50s.
Another weather system will be moving in Sunday night and early Monday, which will bring a chance for some light snow showers to southern Kansas. This should not be heavy snow at all.
