Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that very cold temperatures have prompted us to keep the Weather Alert Day going into Friday morning. Some places will see -10 to -15 on the feels like reading to start the day.
Skies will remain mostly cloudy into the night with lows falling below zero in western Kansas, but single digit lows will be common elsewhere. Wind chills will all be below zero around the state.
Sunshine is back for Friday as the temperature begins to climb. Much of the state will see highs in the 20s with light winds.
Over the weekend, we begin to thaw out. Highs will be close to freezing on Saturday and with the help of a south breeze on Sunday, much of the state could be close to 40 degrees. It does look dry all the way through the weekend.
