Two storms coming this week

Good Monday morning everyone. What a cold day yesterday with highs in the teens and wind chills down in the single digits. I'd say most of the comments on Facebook suggest that many are ready for spring. But I still see a few popping up that want some snow before spring's arrival. 

First off, this will be a rather chilly week. And to go along with the chill, there are two different storms that will be coming through. Most of the winter has been very active with one system right after another. 

First system of the week arrives. The moisture supply is limited and it's moving fairly quickly, so don't expect much out of it. There is a chance we could see some very light drizzle late Tuesday morning or early afternoon, but it will quickly change to some light snow flurries. Best chance for any measurable snowfall will be closer to KC and northern Missouri. But even in those areas, it only looks like maybe 1-3 inches.

The second storm will arrive with chances for some light snow in Kansas. This system is tracking farther south and west, so it's impact on Kansas will be limited. However, there is a good chance some light snow may fall early Thursday before the storm gets too far south and we end up dry by Thursday evening.

Then we will focus on a warming trend into next weekend. After two, back-to-back weekends of Arctic air, we see some 50s returning by Saturday or Sunday and it should be dry too.
