Colder Thursday on tap

By  | 

Meteorologist Sarah Fletcher says Thursday will be the coldest day we've had this week, and we'll even have a chance for light snow... but there's a warming trend on the way.

That cold, arctic air will continue to stream in from the north, dropping temperatures on Thursday. We'll start the morning in single digits for the west and in the low teens for south central Kansas. When you factor in the wind, it's going to feel more like -5 to -10 for most of us. By Thursday afternoon, highs will only reach the low 20s.

Light snow will be possible overnight into tomorrow morning. Snow showers will begin to move into the northern part of the state, along the Nebraska border, Wednesday evening. These showers will start to move to the southeast, into the Wichita area around 6 a.m. By the afternoon. any chance for snow will come to an end. Totals will stay light.

A warming trend is on the way for the end of the week. We'll gradually warm into the upper 40s by the start of next week.
