Lawrence to get snow flurries, blustery winds overnight

Don’t worry about pulling out your snow shovel again on Tuesday morning.

Lawrence might get a few more flakes overnight, but it won’t amount to much compared to the two snowstorms that passed through in the last week, says Ross Janssen, 6News meteorologist.

“This is our third storm, but it’s a much weaker storm. I don’t think we’re going to add onto any more snow than we already have on the ground,” Janssen said.

Through Saturday, the two earlier storms brought four inches of white stuff to Lawrence Municipal Airport. Totals of four to five inches were reported across the city and throughout northeast Kansas, Janssen said.

For tonight’s storm, you can expect cloudy skies, with some possible flurries after midnight, he said.

“One of the bigger effects from the storm will be the strong northwest winds that may gust over 30 mph,” he said.

Combined with the temperature dropping to 25, the winds will drop the wind chill index down to below 10, he said.

For Tuesday, Lawrence can expect mostly cloudy skies through the morning, with few flakes, if any, coming down, he said.

“The wind will stay out of the northwest at 15-to-25, with gusts over 30 at times tomorrow,” he said.

Tuesday’s high will be 34, falling to a low of 22 by early Wednesday morning. The winds will decrease and be from the west at 5 to 12 mph, he said.

“Wednesday looks like sunshine and clouds mixed, with highs back in the 40s,” he said.
