Storm Center Update - Thursday PM

We’ll have one more day of dry and warm weather before the bottom drops out this weekend and next week.

Skies will remain clear this evening and tonight with temperatures falling to the thirties to near forty by the morning. As a storm system approaches from the southwest tomorrow, clouds will slowly increase during the afternoon. Despite the increase in clouds, temperatures will be well above average with highs in the seventies. As the system gets closer, clouds will become thick Friday night and into Saturday morning. Due to the thick clouds at night, temperatures will stay warm with Saturday morning lows only in the forties to near fifty degrees. But the clouds will block the sun for the weekend and it will be much cooler with highs only in the fifties this weekend. The weekend will also bring our first significant chance for rain this month with some areas getting close to a half inch or more. The better chance to get wet this weekend will be on Saturday.

There’s a stronger push of cold air for midweek of next week. This round of cold air will push us back to the forties for highs starting on Wednesday with strong northerly winds. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some snow in parts of KELOLAND during that time too.
