Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
453 PM CST Sun Jan 21 2018

Mild conditions and a mix of sun and clouds were in place across
central and eastern Kansas today. Late afternoon temperatures
ranged from the upper 40s over north central Kansas, to around 70
degrees over far southeast corner of the state. Gusty south and
southwest winds accompanied these warm readings this afternoon.

A powerful storm system is expected to lift across the Plains
tonight and Monday and will bring significant snowfall to much of
Kansas and especially Nebraska. For tonight, between 6 inches and
a foot of snow will be possible over far northwest Kansas along
with southwest Nebraska. These high snow totals will shift
northeast on Monday, affecting much of northeast Nebraska and
northwest Iowa, where up to a foot of snow will also be possible.
Further south over northern and northeast Kansas, between 1 and 3
inches of snow will be possible, mainly falling on Monday. To make
things worse, very strong northwest winds will accompany the
snowfall, causing blizzard conditions over parts of northwest
Kansas tonight and central and northeast Nebraska Monday.

Overnight lows are expected to range from the teens over western
Nebraska to the low 40s over eastern Oklahoma. Look for highs on
Monday to range from around 50 over much of Oklahoma to the low
30s over most of Nebraska.
