Wichita weather: Flurries ending, sunshine likely by late in the day

The powerful winter storm that dumped more than a foot of snow across central Kansas – and at least 8 inches in Wichiita – is slowly moving out of the area this morning, forecasters say.

While the snow hasn’t ended, little additional accumulation is anticipated, said Scott Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. The winter storm warning expires at 9 a.m., though flurries are likely through the morning.

Skies should slowly clear throughout the day, with highs in the mid-teens and north winds occasionally crawling into double digits. Wind chills will frequently fall below -10. Overnight lows are expected to drop below freezing and Thursday’s high should rise to the upper 20s under sunny skies.

Warmer weather is on its way, too: Friday should top freezing and the weekend should see highs in the 40s.
