National Weather Service Wichita KS
444 PM CST Tue Feb 20 2018

A wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet moved across portions of
eastern Kansas and western Missouri today, as a stalled frontal
boundary remained across the plains. Afternoon temperatures ranged
from the teens in Nebraska to the lower 30s in southwest

The wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and rain will slowly shift
east into the Ozarks tonight, as a Canadian area of high pressure
moves across the northern plains. This will lead to clearing skies
across portions of Nebraska and northern Kansas. Low temperatures
tonight will range from minus 5 in southwest Nebraska to the middle
20s in southwest Missouri.

The ridge of high pressure will quickly move east into the Great
Lakes on Wednesday, with moisture rapidly returning to Oklahoma and
southwest Kansas by Wednesday afternoon.  This increased moisture
will lead to a wintry mix of precipitation returning to plains by
Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening. Winter weather advisories
have been issued for portions of Oklahoma and Kansas for Wednesday
evening. High temperatures on Wednesday will range from the upper
20s in northwest Kansas, to the lower 40s in eastern Oklahoma.
