Settling into the deep freeze

Light snow is being reported in the Wichita area as the Monday morning commute hits its stride.

Bone-chilling cold will rule the week in the Wichita area, forecasters say. Highs today may touch 20 under gray skies, but wind chills will linger around 0 much of the day.

Northerly winds will stay in the single digits today. Overnight lows will also dip into single numbers around Wichita, and to nearly 0 in northern Kansas.

Southerly winds will warm Tuesday up a little, with highs in the mid-20s, but forecasters say a reinforcing blast of arctic air will send temperatures diving to near record levels the rest of the week.
