Weather Alert - Snow Thursday

By  | 

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that snow should begin in Kansas by early Thursday, especially across central and western Kansas. Other areas of the state will see a rain/snow mix to start, and then changing to snow through the day on Thursday.

Highest accumulations will be in central and northern Kansas with some areas getting up to 5 inches. Early Thursday, temperatures will be in the low 30s, and then not warming up much through the day. Highs will be stuck in the mid 30s. Look for the area of snow to continue to move east as the day continues.

Snow should be ending Thursday evening before skies clear out.

Friday will have sunshine, but a blast of Arctic air slides in as we finish out the week. Look for highs to be stuck in the 30s Friday afternoon. Another chance for some light snow could be coming Sunday evening, but accumulations are not likely at this time.
