Wichita escaped a rather early frost Monday morning, as overnight lows did not dip as much as forecast.
Central Kansas wasn’t as fortunate, with Goessel hitting 32 and Wilson Lake 31, according to the National Weather Service. Kanopolis hit 33 and Marion 37.
Wichita bottomed out at 42, and forecasts don’t call for lows in the 30s the rest of the week.
Wichita’s record for earliest frost won’t be threatened this year. That was Sept. 22 just 15 years ago – in 1995. The average first killing frost in Wichita is on Oct. 28.
