Arctic cold ahead

A couple of changes today, as any remaining drizzle or light rain should move out of the area by noon.  Temperatures today will start out high early then stabilize during the day and bottom out overnight.  Today’s high was at Midnight, as the temperature in Butler was at 50 degrees.

Temperatures will fall into the upper 30s by 7 a.m. then stay mostly stable until sundown then they will begin to drop into the teens for overnight lows as the cold air filters in behind the cold front that moved through the region.

For the most part we’ll see sunshine, but that won’t do much to combat the cold Arctic air. Temperatures won’t rise above freezing until the weekend as temperatures will be in the 20s for daytime highs and the teens for overnight lows.

A small disturbance will move through overnight on Wednesday, and bring us a chance to pick up some snow.  Some models are showing a band of 1 to 2 inches across central Kansas into central Missouri.  Not a lot of moisture, but with the light fluffy snow, we could see some ground coverage with this system.

Here’s your Quickcast:

Today: Mostly cloudy skies through midafternoon.  Afternoon temperatures in the upper 30s. Gusty northerly winds of 10 to 15 m.p.h., with gusts up to 25 m.p.h.

Tonight: Clearing skies. Winds begin to calm down, lows in the mid-teens.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy skies, highs in the upper 20s.

Wednesday night:  Mostly cloudy skies, 30 percent chance of snow.  Lows in the mid-teens.

Thursday: Snow chances move out by noon. Partly cloudy skies, highs in the low 20s.
