The heaviest snow is now to our east. There are a few bands leftover, but shouldn’t amount to much more Sunday morning.
Snowfall totals through 7 AM range from around an inch in Ark City to 5.5″ of snow in Hays.
Roads are snow-packed this morning. The powdery nature has led to a reduction in visibility with winds gusting above 30 MPH.
The other side of this storm is the dangerously cold wind chills. Temperatures will stay locked in the deep freeze today with highs through this afternoon from the single digits to the teens. Wind chills will make it feel as cold as -20!
Kids heading to class on Monday morning will need to load on the layers. At the bus stop, wind chills will be below zero. We will dig out of the deep freeze eventually, but not until mid-week with highs returning to the 40s. Unsettled skies will return on Thursday with a chance for rain.
