Potentially messy weekend weather

0

Meteorologist Mark Larson says a quick-hitting rain-maker will race eastward out of Kansas Friday afternoon and it’ll be dry tonight but there are HUGE weather changes on the way Sunday; tumbling temps for everyone, measurable snow for some.

A fast-moving weather-maker will race to our east Friday afternoon, taking the rain with it, leaving behind decreasing clouds and highs in the 50s to near 60 degrees. Southerly winds will gust over 20 mph across western Kansas later in the day but they’ll be lighter elsewhere.

Clouds will push back into our area from the south Friday night but we’ll stay dry with lows in the 30s and 40s.

Look for a mix of sun and clouds Saturday with highs in the mid 50s to around 60 statewide.

A strong cold front will make a hard push on Kansas from the northwest Saturday night then plow through the rest of our state Sunday. The front will bring accumulating snow to central and eastern Kansas with a rain/snow mix farther to the east. Gusty northerly winds behind the front will cause temps to tumble into the 20s and 30s by sunset Sunday with wind chills falling into the teens.
