KSAL Staff - December 4, 2013 6:26 am
What a difference a day makes. After a high temperature near 70 on Tuesday, Central Kansas woke up to freezing drizzle and freezing temperatures Wednesday.
According to the National Weather Service, it will be bitterly cold for the rest of the week week as an arctic airmass moves into central and eastern Kansas. After a high in the lower 30s on Wednesday, temperatures will not reach 30 degrees through the weekend.
Light snow will develop across the area on Thursday. The better chances of accumulating snowfall exist over southern and southeast Kansas. Snowfall amounts will range from flurries in central Kansas, to a trace to one inch in south central Kansas, to 1 to 4 inches in southeast Kansas by Friday morning. Slippery travel may develop closer to the Kansas Oklahoma border by Thursday evening.
Chances for snow look a better for Sunday as a disturbance moves across the state.
Be sure to bundle up when going outside.
