Warmer weekend coming - Close call on Arctic Air

Finally Friday and how perfect on the timing of warmer air coming back to Kansas. We are going to see a big jump in temperatures Saturday and Sunday and there's a good chance we're going to have some 60s. I know the Super Bowl is on Sunday, so many of us will be glued to the TV, but before the game kicks off, soak up some spring-like weather.

Next week will be a close call on Arctic air. Our computer models continue to show a midweek cold snap, but just how cold is still a bit up in the air. We will keep an eye on this through the weekend, but I would expect temperatures will drop by Wednesday at the latest.

Kansas isn't the only area missing out on snow in the month of January. Chicago (of all places) only had .6" of snow in the entire month. It was the 5th lowest January snowfall on record. Yes, Chicago! They average close to 11 inches during the month. Many of you keep asking if we will ever have some snow this winter around here. I'll be sure to let you know when I see more concrete evidence of when that may be.

The pattern starts to look more active in mid to late February, but will it be cold enough? I still expect we are going to see another blast of Arctic air before this month is over. So we will wait to see if the stormy weather pattern happens alongside the colder air.
