One storm today... next one tomorrow

We are still expecting the stormy pattern will continue over much of the central and southern US. One storm system in the Plains today will continue to generate some rain showers around the area with some light snow expected in far western Kansas.

If you take a look at this mornings regional radar view, you can see one system over Oklahoma. The next one is coming from California. They have been blasted with flooding rainfall. Getting too much of a good thing all at one time. It's been dumping heavy snowfall in the Sierras. What an amazing turn around from the last couple of winter seasons. As that system moves east, it will weaken some and become less organized. So even though it will have an impact on Kansas weather, it shouldn't be anything all that significant.

Light snow is still expected Friday through early Saturday. Latest forecast data is still suggesting snowfall will be under an inch for most of the state. A few isolated 2 or 3 inch amounts look to set up in western Kansas, but those will be few and far between.

And get ready for a COLD weekend. Saturday will have highs in the 20s with wind chills down in the teens for much of the day.
