The system, has caused the issuance of Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm warnings over most of Wyoming, portions of central and western Nebraska and into the Dakotas.
The cold front associated with that disturbance as of 12:30 p.m. has moved through central Kansas and back into southern Colorado. Behind this frontal boundary we are seeing much cooler temperatures. Temperatures over western Kansas are in the lower 50 and into the mid-40s. This frontal boundary will continue to move eastward allowing colder air to flow in behind it.
Ahead of the frontal boundary most of eastern Kansas is in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Winds in this region are roaring out of the south, with most locations seeing winds in the 20 to 30 m.p.h. range. Isolated gusts of 40 m.p.h. have been reported.
A look at the 12:30 p.m. radar shows areas of snow developing over the foothills of the Rockies and into Wyoming and the Panhandle of Nebraska. This development will continue through the day.
I’ll have a complete update later today. Until then hold onto your hats.
