Wichita hits record low for the date

KSAL StaffDecember 18, 2016

Temperatures fell well below zero around Kansas, including in Wichita, which hit a record low for the date.

The temperature in Wichita on Sunday dipped to minus 10, a record for Dec. 18. The National Weather Service said the temperature later inched up to minus 5.

Weather service meteorologist Andy Kleinsasser told The Wichita Eagle (http://j.mp/2hfNpGi) the former record for Dec. 18 was minus 4, which was recorded in 1983. He also says the Sunday low tied for the third-coldest December day in Wichita.

The weather service says that while wind speeds have eased up in Kansas, temperatures were expected to be between minus 5 to the single digits around the state Sunday.

The frigid weather follows freezing rain that created dangerous road conditions throughout much of Kansas on Saturday.
