(KMOV) – After a calm – but cold – Thursday, things look to get a bit dicey over the next three days.

Temperatures Thursday morning were in the low 20s, and were expected to only get to the mid 20s by the afternoon with double-digit wind speeds.

Things will remain quiet through the Thursday evening and Friday morning. But then things get interesting.

“Friday afternoon, evening commute, could be dicey,” said News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt. “Could be rain, could be a mix of rain and sleet.”

Ehrhardt says if temperatures fall just below freezing at the right time, we’ll get some freezing rain.

“That could certainly happen in the evening so be careful, stay posted on the weather,” he said.

Accumulations Friday look to be a trace of less than 1 in.

Saturday looks to be mostly calm, cold and dry through the afternoon.  There will be a chance for snow Saturday night.

“But Sunday into Monday, there could be a high impact storm,” said Ehrhardt.

Ehrhardt said snow, freezing rain and sleet are all expected.

 

“We could have some pretty significant totals of rain, snow and sleet before this thing is all over with on Monday,” he said.
