Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Wichita KS
500 AM CST Wed Feb 21 2018

It`s been a mostly clear and bitterly cold night with temperatures
ranging from around 10 in Northern Kansas, to around 20 across the
southeast, but north winds from 10 to 20 mph produced wind chills
from zero to around 5 below in parts of Central and North-Central
Kansas.

There`ll be more nasty weather today and especially tonight as an
intense upper-level trough, situated from the Northern Rockies to
just off the Baja California Coast, ejects multiple disturbances
northeast across the Plains. The upper wave will strengthen as it
remains nearly stationary which would cause a surface low to also
strengthen over Southeast Colorado. A wintry mix of freezing rain,
sleet and light snow will spread from Oklahoma, across Central
and Eastern Kansas, to Nebraska and Missouri this afternoon and
tonight. Winter weather advisories are in effect for most areas
from this afternoon until Thursday morning.

Although snow accumulations should only reach around 1 inch, the
changeover to sleet and freezing rain will definitely cause
hazardous travel. Highs will only reach 25 to 30 while lows should
run from around 15 in the Western Plains to around 30 across the
southeast.
