Late Weekend Storm Still Developing, Holiday Says

A Sunday into Monday storm that is likely to affect Kansas is still causing quite a bit of uncertainty for weather forecasters.

“The upper level part of the storm isn’t even going to move on shore until Sunday morning,” said meteorologist Dan Holiday. “We have some disturbances coming out ahead of it that will actually cause the precipitation for us.”

There is a chance for all precipitation types with this system.

“We’re going to see sort of a dividing line across northern and southern Kansas,” said Holiday. “There will be some areas of a wintry mix of precipitation. A lot of folks are going to be out this weekend. This is going to be a big shopping weekend. It’s something to keep in mind, if you’re going to be out and about doing your shopping. Saturday is a great day to do it. It’s going to be a lot colder and you’ll have to bundle up, but early Sunday morning is when we think we’ll see the onset of precipitation.”

Exactly how much of Kansas gets what is still, quite literally, up in the air.

“That’s where the uncertainty lies is, where is that line going to be between snow, freezing rain and snow and just rain and snow,” said Holiday. “This storm, again is still way out to the west. Any slight
track at all will certainly make a change as we get closer.”
