WICHITA, Kan. -- After a relatively mild end to the work week, the coldest air of the season begins moving toward KAKEland.

A strong push of cold air descends from Canada into the plains this weekend. Temperatures in Wichita on Saturday will top off in the lower 30s with wind chills in the upper teens.

Snow is expected to develop in northwest Kansas by mid-morning. The snow will expand and move southeast across the rest of the state throughout the day.

Temperatures Monday morning will be extremely frigid with lows near zero in Wichita and below zero across north-central Kansas. Plan on morning wind chills between 10 and 15 below zero. High temperatures will struggle to get into the teens for the eastern half of the state on Monday afternoon.

The arctic intrusion will be fairly short lived as temperatures will start to warm into the 30s by Tuesday afternoon. Highs will bounce back into the low 40s by the end of the week.
