Tracking Snow Chances as Arctic Air Begins Our Week

Tracking Snow Chances as Arctic Air Begins Our Week

It looks to be another cold day across Mid-Missouri with temperatures in the mid-20s.

Temperatures will remain below freezing throughout the workweek, so the 5"-8" of snow that the Valley received during Friday's storm will not be going anywhere anytime soon. Light to a times moderate snow will continue through Monday morning. "Snow totals by Noon on Monday will generally range from a Trace to 0.50" for Wichita just a dusting, with 1-2" amounts possible across northern and central Kansas.

The deep freeze will really take hold on Tuesday with lows dropping into the single digits and unsafe wind chill values from -5 to -10.

Low temperatures and a chance of snow are in the forecast for much of the week, with weekend temperatures expected to climb out of a cold snap. Unsafe wind chills are possible by Tuesday morning, ranging from 10 to 20 below zero. Highs by Tuesday afternoon will only reach the mid to upper single digits in most areas.

The chill was driven by strong north winds that not only produced sporadic flurries, but generated 8- to 14-foot-high waves on Lake Michigan that caused some shoreline flooding. Our next chance of precipitation comes Saturday night into Sunday morning (next weekend).

Today: Morning clouds, becoming mostly sunny by afternoon. Wind: S 10-15. High: 41. The good news is, winds are less of a factor, only around 5 miles per hour from the north-northeast. That not as bad as yesterday, but enough to keep wind chills in the teens.

Monday: Morning light snow, then mostly cloudy and cold.
