Meteorologist Mark Larson says a weak, fast-moving weather-maker will race across Kansas Wednesday, dropping some light snow or flurries along the way. The system will be followed by our first shot of Arctic air this season.
Wednesday highs will only top-out in the 20s and 30s.
Parts of Kansas will see occasional light snow or flurries but only a couple inches are expected in the northwest and just a dusting elsewhere.
Behind Wednesday's weather-maker, bitter wind chills in the single digits above and below zero will be a major concern Thursday and Friday mornings.
Look for sunny skies and highs in the 20s Thursday but we should climb back above freezing Friday.
