Future Radar Sunday evening showing a line of strong storms moving across the region

There is a slight chance for storms Thursday evening along the Texas/New Mexico state line. Drier and cooler conditions move in this afternoon, with wind gusts up to 20 miles per hour. Brrrr! Don't plan on too much sunshine today, but we'll probably sneak a couple peeks in this afternoon. Strong winds continue, but skies will be clearing and temperatures will be improving. Highs Tuesday will be in the 30's to low 40's. We'll be a solid 20-25° BELOW that seasonal standard again today. Sunday will stay cool with highs only in the low 60s and a steady westerly breeze.

As we alluded to above - spring isn't least we don't think it is. However most models are indicating that this boundary will halt north of Fredericksburg, keeping the warm moist air around.

Snow and wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour (80 kph) were whipping through parts of South Dakota for a second straight day Saturday, causing blizzard conditions that made travel all but impossible. Into the weekend, our next storm system and cold front will approach.

The region also could see some snow showers or snow flurries late Sunday night or early Monday morning as the latest cold front pushes into the region. There isn't a whole lot of moisture available, so we'll be mainly dry. Paul International Airport, which grounded all flights Saturday afternoon as heavy snow made it hard to keep runways clear and planes deiced, while blizzard conditions forced the airport in South Dakota's biggest city, Sioux Falls, to remain closed for a second straight day.

You're already in the right place for the latest weather information across Northeast Kansas.

"In the meantime, be safe in this snowy, sloppy weather and have a great weekend!" Keep an eye on the sky and have access to more than one weather warning method (TV, radio, cellphone apps, weather radio, etc) and heed any warnings issued. It's the very best way to get an up-to-the-minute forecast on-the-go!
