The winter storm that brought much of central and western Kansas to a standstill on Monday will bring a mix of frozen precipitation to the Wichita metropolitan area today, forecasters say, culminating with a light frosting of snow.
The morning commute could be slick around Wichita, and the mix of rain, snow, sleet and freezing rain could last much of the day before changing to snow late in the afternoon. Highs today won’t budge much from the overnight low right around freezing, forecasters say.
Northerly winds will be steady in the upper teens, with gusts to nearly 30 miles an hour. Snow should end tonight, with skies gradually clearing. Lows are expected to dip into the upper teens.
Wednesday should see a significant warm-up to the low 40s under sunny skies, forecasters say.
Another chance for snow arrives Thursday night.
