Meteorologist Mark Larson says Tuesday's snow system will plow away from Kansas Wednesday leaving flake-free but chilly midweek weather in its wake.
Look for decreasing clouds from west to east Wednesday with highs in the ranging from around freezing for northeastern Kansas, to the upper 30s across the west. Winds will be light today.
Temps will climb into the 40s Thursday with a mix of sun and clouds and it'll be even warmer Friday with highs near 50 degrees under a mostly cloudy sky.
Areas of drizzle and light rain will develop Friday night and some icy weather will be possible across northwest Kansas overnight. We'll see rain changing to snow Saturday here in Kansas with more slick travel conditions likely by afternoon.
Blowing snow and widespread travel trouble will be statewide concerns Saturday night into early Sunday morning.
