Snow and cold for Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Another winter weather maker rolls into KAKEland late Monday into Tuesday morning. This next system will bring much colder air along with accumulating snow for parts of KAKEland.

Ahead of the front, highs will be in the 40s, 50s and 60s on Monday with a south breeze. The front will gradually slide from Northwest Kansas to South Central Kansas through the day on Monday and this will turn the wind to the North.

During the overnight hours on Monday, spotty snow will start across Western Kansas and it will gradually slide east toward I-135 as morning approaches. Off and on light snow will be possible throughout the day on Tuesday. The snow will eventually exit Eastern Kansas by late Tuesday night.

Snow totals will be light across the southern half of the state with accumulation generally less than 1” while the northern half could see 1” to 4” through the end of the day on Tuesday. With low snow totals expected across Southern Kansas, major travel issues are not anticipated. Travel along and north of I-70 could turn treacherous at times throughout the day on Tuesday, especially on untreated roads.

High temperatures will be significantly colder on Tuesday across KAKEland with morning lows starting off in the teens and 20s with highs in the afternoon in the low to upper 20s. Wind chill values will generally be in the teens throughout the day on Tuesday.
