TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – Snow flurries are experiencing in northern Kansas tonight that will leave a trail of snow by Monday morning. Today was cold and in some areas, deceptively sunny. Temperatures have been trapped in the low 20s this afternoon and will plummet into the single digits tonight. Expect another super cold Monday morning with wind chills once again below freezing. Winds will be less breezy from the northeast at about 10 mph on Monday, but the wind chill will still be unpleasant in the teens. Temperatures for the second half of the week turn into the warm mid 40’s and well into the 50’s for the upcoming weekend. I can not wait!
Take the initiative:
This evening: Mostly cloudy. Lows in single digits. N winds between 10 and 20 mph.
Monday: Partly cloudy. Highest in the 1920s. Winds from NE around 10 km/h.
We will continue to be cold Tuesday, although the sun should shine in the afternoon with southwesterly winds Tuesday of 5 to 10 mph. We are starting to see signs of improvement on Wednesday with temperatures returning to the 40s. A week-long cold front rolls through late Wednesday but will have little effect on our temperatures.
Thursday will be nicer in the mid 40’s with mostly sunny skies and light northerly winds in the 5 to 10 mph range. We will be a little colder on Friday, but still around normal in the 40s. It doesn’t matter though, because next Saturday, Sunday and Monday everyone looks so much nicer in the 40s and 50s. However, expect the winds to become breezy during this warmer period of weather.
The bad news this week is that there are no signs of ANY moisture. Even looking long-term, the first full week of February shows a sharp trend. We have seen a little bit of moisture recently with a couple of laps of rain and snow but we could always use more.
