We're watching as a few storms roll eastward overnight and provide shower and storm chances for Wichita around the Midnight hour. There will be plenty of wind outside of the rain. Temperatures will cool down to the 20s and 30s west with 40s east. Rain in the northwest will give way to snow and blizzard conditions as those colder temperatures invade, especially after Midnight.
Snow will end for the northwest tomorrow morning. Around 1" of snow is possible for Goodland while 1-3" is expected toward St. Francis and farther northwest of there. Gusty winds will prevail for the state tomorrow, especially in the west where gusts will exceed 50-55 mph! West winds in the Wichita area will be in excess of 35-40 mph. We'll see some clouds gradually work southeast as high temperatures reach the 30s, 40s and 50s.
The weather next week looks quiet but turning windy and colder by Thursday and Friday.
