Our chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase this evening and overnight for much of KAKEland.

As a low-pressure system moves east from Colorado this evening, rain and a few thunderstorms will likely develop across western Kansas. Wichita, Hutchinson, Salina, and the rest of central Kansas will see the best shower/thunderstorm chance overnight as these storms push east.

Widespread severe weather is not expected, but a few of the stronger storms may produce some 50mph wind gusts and pea sized hail.

Rain will likely change to snow for extreme northwest Kansas during the overnight hours. Snow accumulations don't look large (only an inch or two at most) but what does fall will be blowing and drifting with 40+mph wind gusts.

A winter weather advisory has been posted from 11:00pm (MST) Saturday through 5:00pm (MST) Sunday for Thomas, Sherman, and Rawlins county.

A blizzard warning has been posted from 11:00pm (MST) Saturday through 5:00pm (MST) Sunday for Cheyenne county.

Sunshine will return to KAKEland by Sunday afternoon. Very gusty winds will return as well.
