Mid Week Warmup Leads To Possible Snow On Thursday Morning

Warm, spring-like weather will persist for another few days throughout northeast Kansas before winter makes a sharp return for the latter half of the week.

Highs on Tuesday and Wednesday will hover in the 50s to near 60. Rain overspreads the region Wednesday evening, transitioning to snow overnight. One to two inches of snow will be possible northwest of a line from Minneapolis to Marysville. Gusty winds will also cause travel difficulties in the snow.

Cold air will surge southward in the wake of this storm–plunging nighttime wind chill values into the single digits and teens below zero.
