As expected, winter is back! Temperatures this morning and into early afternoon will hover in the middle and upper 30s. Drizzle has developed in a few areas this morning.
By lunch, we’ll start to see more sprinkles and light rain showers. They will be spotty, so not all will pick up one.
As temperatures continue to fall as the back side of the system approaches this afternoon, any rain will convert over to snow showers.
The heaviest stays in Nebraska and Iowa. A Blizzard Warning is in effect for parts of Iowa and southern Minnesota.
Up to a half inch of accumulation is possible north of 36 Highway in our viewing area. Even KC could see a few snow showers for the evening commute — but no accumulation to cause problems. Snow showers will wane and move east after 7 PM. Temps for the PM drive will be above freezing around 35.
Overnight, a hard freeze is likely. Temperatures will dip down to the upper teens and lower 20s which will destroy any early blossoms. Sunshine is back for Saturday with chilly temps in the lower 40s.
By Sunday, a quick moving system will bring in a rain/snow mix late in the morning to early afternoon.
Highs will be in the upper 40s. Temps keep climbing into Monday with partly cloudy skies in the middle 50s. Tuesday, we touch the 60s with a chance for rain. The rest of the work week looks dry with temps falling back into the 40s and lower 50s.
