A cold front will move through the state overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase after dark on Wednesday for areas south and east of a Pratt/Hutchinson/Salina line. This will not be a drought buster by any means but a few lucky individuals might pick up plus or minus 1/4 inch of rain when all is said and done. Rain should move out of the state from northwest to southeast Thursday morning.
The next chance for rain is forecast to arrive just in time for the weekend. This system will possibly bring showers and thunderstorms as well as accumulating snowfall across portions of northwest Kansas. Showers and thunderstorms should develop Saturday afternoon and spread across the entire state overnight Saturday and through the day on Sunday. Another cold front is forecast to move through Kansas on Sunday. As colder air spills into the state, rain could change to snow for portions of northwest Kansas. Temperatures look to stay above freezing for the remainder of the state. Since this event is still several days away, this forecast will be updated, as new model data becomes available.
