Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport officially measured 14.2 inches of snow, making it the second highest snowstorm on record for the city. The snow is winding down this evening in northern and far eastern Kansas. Look for cloudy to mostly cloudy skies east, while partly cloudy skies work into the west. Overnight lows will be frigid with single digits plentiful in western Kansas. Travel conditions will be extremely poor.
We will see decreasing clouds tomorrow but the snow cover will hinder any significant warming as highs struggle to reach the 20s. Friday night will be frigid again lows in the single digits to near 10 degrees statewide.
The next storm system will bring some rain and snow to the state Sunday into and Monday morning.
