Freezing rain and sleet in central and eastern Kansas early this
afternoon gradually decreased in coverage as it progressed east
into Missouri. Widespread freezing rain continued in a broad area
from western Texas across Oklahoma into southern Missouri through
the afternoon hours. Scattered light freezing rain and sleet moved
from eastern New Mexico into southwest Kansas this evening with
the approach of another minor upper level disturbance. Skies were
cloudy all day, and temperatures rose only as few degrees from
overnight lows. Highs mostly were in the 20s with balmy highs in
the mid 30s in far southeast Kansas. These readings were 20 to 25
degrees below climatological averages.

An area of upper level low pressure centered over the Great Basin
will move little Saturday but will begin to progress toward the
Central Plains Sunday and Sunday night. A cold Canadian high
pressure ridge will remain entrenched across the High Plains, and
minor disturbances rotating around the upper level low will
support episodes of light precipitation through the weekend. A
warm layer aloft over the dome of cold air will favor light
freezing rain or sleet as the dominant precipitation type.
Precipitation totals will be light tonight and Saturday but will
be sufficient to cause hazardous driving conditions.

Freezing rain will continue from western Texas across western and
central Oklahoma tonight. Scattered light freezing rain and sleet
will continue tonight across most of Kansas with a chance for
light snow in the northwest part of the state. Refer to the latest winter
weather advisories and warnings for additional details. Light
freezing drizzle and fog may form later tonight into early
Saturday in southwest Nebraska, northwest Kansas and eastern
Colorado. Lows tonight vary from near 10 in northeast Colorado to
the upper 20s in southeast Kansas with lows in the upper teens and
lower 20s in southwest Kansas. Highs Saturday will vary from the
upper 20s in western Kansas to the mid 30s from central Oklahoma
into eastern Kansas.
