WICHITA, Kan. -- Snow will taper this morning, but the brutal cold is just moving in. Highs this afternoon will struggle to make it to the middle teens in central Kansas, though highs could reach the middle 20s out west. Wind chills will be held to near zero through the afternoon.
Several law enforcement agencies and KAKE viewers in south-central Kansas, including the Wichita area, say many surface roads and side streets are snow-packed. KDOT crews noted some problem areas on highways as well. Before you head out the door today, check road conditions in Wichita and across the state.
A wind chill advisory takes effect for most KAKEland this evening into Monday. Wind chills could be dangerously low between -10 and -20 overnight Sunday into Monday. Winds will be out of the north at 10 to 20 mph, with actual lows in the negative single digits.
"Nicer" weather will move in on Tuesday as highs return to the 30s and 40s.
Snow accumulations as of 6 a.m. Sunday:
