The storm may stay far enough away to give the region mainly dry conditions or just a few snow showers, but if the storm moves closer, then accumulating snow would occur. That, along with a wind still gusting past 20 miles per hour, creates a wind chill factor of 20 to 30 degrees below zero for many of us late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning. Locations centered inside the WYMT viewing area and north have been able to receive a little bit more sunshine today.
As mentioned yesterday, models remain all over the place once you get halfway through the weekend.
Last year on Christmas we were dealing with record breaking highs and a risk for severe weather.not so much the case this year. "Models are indicating less than 1" of overall snow accumulation through next Monday. Highs will reach the lower 20s for both Sunday and Monday. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if this system ends up clicking back to the north and west toward us again as we approach late week, many similar ones do, though we're probably talking about a light snow event if it does, not big numbers. Several disturbances continue to work through northeast Kansas for the rest of the year however there isn't a lot of moisture for them to work with.
The deep freeze continues as we head into January.
