Record low for Wichita tonight?

Wichita may set a record low overnight, forecasters say.

The current record is 56, set in 1961, and the National Weather Service is predicting an overnight low of 57 for Wichita.

“It’s not out of the realm of possibility,” meteorologist Kevin Darmofal said. “We’ll be close.”

Friday’s low was 56, though that did not set a record for the date.

Russell could set or tie its record low for Aug. 22. The forecast of 52 would tie the record set in 1966.
