Wichita will experience a wide range of weather today as another blast of arctic air bears down on the region tonight.
Areas of fog will restrict visibility in the metropolitan area this morning, forecasters say, and a slight chance of showers will persist until about noon. Skies will stay cloudy, but southerly winds will hoist temperatures into the mid-60s this afternoon.
Strong thunderstorms – capable of producing hail and damaging winds – are possible in extreme southeast Kansas this afternoon and early evening, forecasters caution.
But winds will shift around to the north as the cold front arrives, sending the temperature and the wind chill plummeting. Overnight lows will bottom out at about 20 in Wichita, with gusty north winds dropping wind chills into the single digits in the metropolitan area. Wind chills could fall below zero in central Kansas.
Thanksgiving Day will be cold and blustery, with highs in the mid-30s and northwesterly winds gusting to more than 20 miles an hour.
