Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
455 AM CST Fri Jan 12 2018

As all know, an Arctic airmass tightened its grip on Kansas during
the night as most areas chilled out with lows in the single digits.
However, northwest winds from 10 to 20 mph produced wind chills as
low as 10 to 15 below across Northern Kansas.

We`ll continue to chill out today and tonight as the Arctic High
continues to spread southeast toward the Upper Mississippi Valley.
Today`s highs will be further hindered by greatly increasing
clouds and winds that`ll shift toward the northeast, then east,
around 10 mph. A wide range of highs is forecast. Nebraska and
Northeast Kansas will only reach 15 to 20 while Southwest Kansas
will rebound to near 45.

Some light snow will spread southeast from Nebraska to Northern
Kansas today and this evening but with minimal accumulation. We`ll
spend another night in the freezer with lows ranging from near
zero in Nebraska to around 15 in Oklahoma.
