If you enjoyed Wichitas pleasant weather the past few days, hold that thought.
Its about to change drastically.
Temperatures are expected to plunge more than 40 degrees from Mondays high of 56 to a low Saturday morning of 10, said Kevin Darmofal, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wichita.
After the leading edge of a cold front creeps into the area Tuesday night, temperatures will begin to tumble and light snow is possible during the day into early Friday.
Were not expecting a big deal, Darmofal said, but there could be light accumulation of snow. Its not out of the realm that we could get an inch or so.
Tuesdays high temperature should be near 60, but Wednesdays high is expected to be about 20 degrees cooler, he added.
High temperatures Thursday through the weekend are forecast to be below the areas normal low temperatures for this time of year.
Thats pretty significant, Darmofal said.
Cloud cover is expected to keep the air a little warmer, but Thursdays projected high is in the upper 20s and Fridays high in the low to mid-20s. The normal low for this time of year is 27.
Friday morning is expected to dip into the low teens.
The cold temperatures arent going away anytime soon either, Darmofal said. Next Monday is expected to be in the upper 20s.
