Our Monday weather features a frigid Canadian air mass sitting right over our area making it a very cold start to our work and school week.
Lows earlier this morning fell into the single-digits and low teens across the state. Wichita bottomed out at 12 degrees - the last time the metro was that cold was February 11th, nearly ten months ago!
Monday afternoon we will see sunshine but it will be one of the coldest days we've had in a long time. Highs will only climb into the 35-40 degree range statewide and our wind should slowly swing around to the west or southwest at 10-15 mph later in the day.
We should thaw out a bit by midweek when temperatures warm back into the 50s, followed by a chance for rain/snow by week's end.
