Chance for snow flurries light, says forecaster

December 11, 2002


A winter storm front passing through the area probably won't bring much snow to the Lawrence area.

But we could see a little rain Thursday, along with some flurries, says Matt Makens, 6News meteorologist.

¢ For the latest forecast, go to and tune in at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. to Sunflower Broadband Channel 6.

"There's a chance for snow flurries, but it would just be that, flurries. I'm not expecting any kind of measurable snow," Makens said. "And, in fact, it could start out as a light rain, if we were to see any precipitation at all."

He said the chances of seeing anything would begin about sunrise Thursday and continue until about noon on Friday. The chances for a mix of rain or snow is about 10 percent to 20 percent, he said.

"A snowflake or two is definitely possible, but I'm not expecting accumulations," he said.

Wednesday's forecast calls for cloudy skies and a high temperature of 46. The overnight low will drop to 34.

Thursday's skies will be cloudy, with a high of 42 and dropping to 27 overnight. Friday will be cloudy with a high of 41.

Through the weekend, skies will be partly cloudy with the highs reaching 46 on Saturday, 52 on Sunday and 47 on Monday, with the lows dropping into the mid 20s.
