Meteorologists continue to call for a slushy rain/snow mix to visit the region Friday night and on into Saturday. Precipitation is expected to begin as rain on Friday evening, which could be joined by snow by midnight.  The chances for a sloppy/slushy mix will continue most of the day on Saturday before tapering off around supper time. Some parts of south central Kansas could see 1-2 inches of accumulation with this system, but this is currently not predicted to develop into any kind of major winter weather event.

The weather on either side of this mess should be much more pleasant, by comparison.  If the clouds manage to clear out today, we’re targeting highs around 50. Friday will beat that mark with predicted temps closer to 60. After we usher the wintry mix out of the area, temps will rebound into the 50s again for Sunday, before nudging very close to 70 degrees on Monday.
