TONIGHT: We’re cold through the rest of the afternoon through this evening– a heavy jacket will be needed heading out the door. Sunshine will stick around as well. Temperatures fall back through the teens overnight as winds start to back off after sunset. Wind chills will be in the single digits through Wednesday morning.
WEDNESDAY: It’s another cold start to the day Wednesday but we’re tracking a return of southwesterly winds. That will aid in a warmup through the afternoon as temperature jump into the Mid-30s. Funny that it’s March and the 30s are a warmup! We’re also tracking increasing cloud cover throughout the day Wednesday as our next system approaches.
EXTENDED: We’re dry through Wednesday with our next chance at precipitation arriving Thursday. We’re tracking an upper-level wave Late Thursday morning rain and snow chances arrive but will be light and spotty. North of I-70, we see a slight snow chance. We’re not expecting accumulation as temperatures will be marginal. As you head south snow makes the changeover to rain. We dry out for Friday before our next system ejects out of the Rockies. This storm will kick out into the central plains early Saturday advecting in deep Gulf of Mexico warmth and moisture. This unstable air will be followed by a fast moving cold front that plows through the area Saturday afternoon. Widespread rain and thunderstorms are possible. The severe threat is limited at the moment, but there’s a chance that could increase. Make sure to keep up to date with ABC 17 News on air and online as this situation unfolds.
