Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
551 PM CST Wed Jan 10 2018

Mostly sunny, windy and relatively warm weather encompassed the
Kansas region today, as low pressure strengthened across the High
Plains. High temperatures reached the 50s and 60s, with 70s over
southwest Kansas...well above seasonal normals.

A strong storm system and associated cold front will spread across
the region tonight, supporting widespread precipitation tonight
through Thursday morning. Rain will mix with and eventually change
to snow from north to south, with snow accumulations of 1 to 3
inches across mainly western, central and northern Kansas, along
with Nebraska. Strong and gusty north winds will support blowing and
drifting snow and poor visibility. Furthermore, temperatures will
plummet in wake of the cold front, supporting wind chills near zero
by early to mid-morning Thursday.

Forecast overnight temperatures range from teens over central Kansas
to 40s and 50s further southeast. Daytime high temperatures Thursday
are in the 20s and 30s, although daytime wind chills will be much
colder in the single digits and teens.
