Quiet weather is expected overnight and Tuesday, but a potent winter storm will bring a risk of snow, sleet, and ice to much of Kansas Wednesday and Thursday. Winter storm watches cover much of Kansas for this time frame.
Overnight, skies will be mostly clear with diminishing winds. Lows will drop into the teens across western Kansas, with low 20s elsewhere.
Skies will turn partly cloudy on Tuesday with highs in the mid & upper 40s central and east, with highs near 50 in the southwest. Lighter winds are expected for much of the state, but will increase from the southeast during the afternoon, especially in western Kansas.
A mix of snow, sleet, and rain is expected Wednesday afternoon, and conditions will likely deteriorate Wednesday night and Thursday. Southern Kansas will have the better chance for rain, sleet, and some freezing rain, with sleet and snow expected in central and northern Kansas. Ice accumulation is possible, especially on elevated surfaces.
