Good Tuesday night bloggers,

We are tracking the chance of snow tonight and a super Super Bowl warm up. This also means the return of the sun. Let's go through this day by day and the snow is first.

TONIGHT-EARLY WEDNESDAY: A band of snow will cross all regions between 11 PM tonight and 8 AM Wednesday. A dusting to 1" is likely for most locations as the main, stronger part of the storm tracks well south. We will be affected by the northern system. The northern edge of the main storm may affect locations just south of I-70. In locations that see the northern edge of the main storm, 1"-2" of snow is possible.

WEDNESDAY MORNING: The snow will exit around 8 AM, so slick spots for the Wednesday morning rush hour are likely.

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON: The snow will be long gone, but the clouds will remain. Roads will improve as temperatures rise to 32-34.

THURSDAY: It will be another cloudy day and a weak system may bring scattered rain and snow showers during the afternoon and night. Lows will be around 30 with highs around 35.

FRIDAY: There are two things to notice. First, the weak system from Thursday is still near by, so we could see a few more rain and snow showers with lows 30-35 and highs 35-40. But, look in the western Plains. There is the clearing line and it will be racing this way, arriving Saturday.

FRIDAY NIGHT: If you area headed to Miami there will be a pretty good chance for rain and thunderstorms Friday afternoon, Friday night, Saturday morning, ending Saturday afternoon. Also, there may be a few showers Wednesday. Otherwise, the weather will be great.

SATURDAY: OK, Super Bowl weekend is here! It will be in the low 80s at Hard Rock Stadium and 56 with sunshine at Arrowhead and all of KC.

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY: At 5:30 PM our time, when the game starts, we will be almost as warm as Miami! We will be in the 60s with low 70s at Hard Rock Stadium. Wow! This is a good omen. I can feel it.

Next Tuesday through Thursday will see a rapid return of winter, so the sun is shining on Chiefs Kingdom!

Have a great night and Wednesday. Stay safe.
