The storm system forecasters thought would bring Wichita its first snow of the season has shifted to the north, meaning the metropolitan area will see flurries but no meaningful snowfall accumulation.
“We may get a mixture out there….a little light rain and snow mixture,” said Rob Cox, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wichita.
In fact, flurries were reported at dawn and should persist throughout the day. But it’s too warm for the snow to stick around. Temperatures should hold steady in the mid-30s today, Cox said, with north winds blowing steadily in the upper teens and gusting to nearly 30 miles an hour.
Light snow is expected tonight, but little to no accumulation is expected. Temperatures should hover in the mid-30s, and warm into the low 40s on Tuesday. Chances of light rain and snow will continue well into the day Tuesday.
Never miss a local story.
