A couple of records were made this morning due to the cold. Russell broke one and Salina tied its record from 1978. Dodge City dipped to -1, beating the record of 0 set in 1960.
While temperatures overnight won’t be as cold as last night, it’s still bitter and dangerous. Please remember your furry friends and bring them inside. This cold is hard on you and them!
A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for northwestern Kansas and southwestern Nebraska where wind chills will approach -20!
High pressure will dominate through Tuesday with highs in the 20s and 30s. Leftover snow on the ground will work against us in the warming department initially this week.
We’re headed to the 50s on Thursday with the 60s by Saturday.
There is a weak system that will travel mainly in Nebraska late Wednesday and into Thursday. This could bring a few rain and snow showers for folks north of I-70.
A better shot for showers and possibly a few thunderstorms is on tap for Saturday. The wrap-around portion of this system could bring a brief changeover to snow for areas north of I-70 this weekend.
