The next two days offer up nice quiet weather with plenty of sunshine and the warmest temperatures we’ll see this week. Monday will bring 40s to lower 50s to the area with plenty of sunshine. Tuesday is also mostly sunny but it will be colder. Temperatures will struggle back to 40.
By Tuesday night, I expect to see snow breaking out across Colorado which is very much part of the batch of powdery snow I’ll be tracking into our area Wednesday. At this point, I expect the best combination of dynamics and moisture to be found in western Kansas and Colorado where a solid 3″ to 6″ snow is possible.
It appears this batch of snow will spread east across Kansas and slowly weaken into our area leaving us with snow flurries and patches of dry powdery snow. Keep in mind, it won’t take much from any patch of snow to produce a quick dusting given how cold it will be in the 20s to near 30.
There is still some computer model guidance suggesting this could actually produce a bit more snow than I’m forecasting for sake of openness. However, the lean from available computer models and the setup suggest a safer call and expectation in our area would be a dusting to 2 inch snow with perhaps a few isolated spots over 2″ if things work out just right.
Here are some graphics showing how things unfold and my most recent forecast accumulation map.
