Light mix or flurries early Tuesday then clearing

Snow showers over the U.P. will slide into our area later tonight. Some of this could mix with light rain showers for places with temperatures above the freezing mark. Snow showers will move to the east early tomorrow, and clearing skies will take over in the afternoon and evening.

Low temperatures overnight will cool to about 32 degrees. A few light snow showers or mixed precipitation will be possible tonight and early Tuesday. Skies will begin to clear in the afternoon and high temperatures will reach about 42 degrees. Winds will be brisk and out of the west, about 15 mph.

A major storm system coming out of Colorado will then move over Kansas on Thursday. Out ahead of this storm system, winds from the south will bring warm temperatures and rainfall is expected Thursday. On the back side of the storm system, blustery winds will pick up out of the north and a changeover to snow showers is expected Friday.

Given all the closures recently, here’s a look at when there will be good weather to spend time outdoors (a green checkmark means good weather expected):

  • Light mixed precipitation is possible early Tuesday, but good weather conditions are expected in the afternoon and evening.
  • Wednesday will start with dry conditions, then late-day rain or rain/snow mix will be possible.
  • Thursday morning should be dry, then afternoon and evening rain will be likely.
  • A changeover to snow will take place on Friday, but should clear out late day. Friday evening is looking dry and cold.

Some late-day sunshine is possible Tuesday with highs in the lower 40s. Wednesday, highs will be in the upper 30s and late rain/snow showers will be possible. Rain is likely Thursday afternoon-evening, and highs will warm to the upper 40s. Colder temperatures and strong winds from the north will move in Friday.
