It is another day of sunshine here in the four-state region. Temperatures will warm up into the 40’s across many parts of the area with very little wind. The system we are watching for the weekend is affecting parts of Kansas, Oklahoma, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Arkansas.
As it continues to move east, clouds will move into the region late Thursday and throughout the day Friday. High pressure will continue to bring moisture into the area. As Friday turns to the night, a few rain or snow showers will be possible.
The current status of the system in our area is still in the works. The weather models have gone back and forth on the matter. We hope to get a clearer picture Thursday, but from right now, temperatures look to be working in our favor for a cold rain with a little bit of snow.
The question remains how much rain or snow we will see. The answer to that question will depend on the timing and temperature in the general area. We will continue to track these developments and give you the latest information.
