Snow squall warning in effect: Environment Canada

Friday, 10 Jan, 2020

Environment Canada said Thursday will see temperatures get above freezing and Friday's forecast is calling for rain and a high of 7 C.

The current computer model trends continue to shift this storm a little further north, which the First Alert Weather Team will continue to monitor and track and will update snow expected totals as warranted. This system bares watching over the next couple of days.

Anywhere from 3-5 inches of lake effect snow are expected, with strong winds gusting as high as 40 miles per hour and creating a spontaneous threat for squalls. Rain showers will develop in the afternoon, and should end Thursday night.

A cold front moving over the regions from Lake Huron will give low visibilities and a quick accumulation of snow later this evening.

The system doesn't have much-staying power.

The weather will begin to warm up around 5 a.m. on Friday. Through the afternoon, the precipitation in South Central Kansas will be rain. The rest of the state should expect highs near 30 degrees. Rain amounts should be relatively light. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Road conditions will likely be most treacherous late Friday into Saturday morning with improving conditions throughout Saturday as sunshine returns to the state.
