The northern areas of Kansas are under a Winter Storm Warning where moderate to heavy snow is forecast. The southern part of the state is under a Winter Weather Advisory. Amounts there will be lighter as the precipitation starts off initially as rain before changing to snow late Saturday afternoon. Highs Saturday will range from the upper 20s in the northwest to the upper 30s to near 40 degrees in the south central and southeast.
Light snow will be exiting eastern Kansas early Sunday morning but there will still be some blowing snow thanks to a blustery northerly wind. Highs won't get out of the 30s Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will slowly rebound next week as highs reach the 40s and 50s.
