Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a strong low pressure system will bring about a major change in the weather after we have passed midweek. Blizzard conditions are likely for northwest Kansas and everyone will see a large drop in temperatures.
Skies will mostly be ready for Tuesday morning with low in the 40's and 50's. The south winds pick up in the afternoon with heights in the 80's. Most sunny clouds will be common around the area.
Wednesday will be very hot for everyone and windy too. Gusts will be close to 50 mph in spots with heights in the 80's. The next storm will bring thunderstorms to snow for northern Kansas late Wednesday night. Wind gusts of 60 mph in northwest Kansas can lead to white conditions early on Thursday. Multiple inch accumulation also looks possible.
Snow will be limited to northwest Kansas, but all areas of the state will have a large drop in temperatures with altitudes falling back to the 40s and 50s.
