From ice to severe weather across Kansas today

WICHITA, Kansas — Temperatures across Kansas at mid-day range from 18 in Goodland to 75 in Wichita. Snow is coming down in Goodland while Wichita is preparing for possible severe weather including large hail, damaging winds and possible tornadoes.

As the front continues to push southeast, winds will gust over 50 mph, temperatures will rapidly fall and snow and ice will spread across the state tonight with lows in the teens, 20s and 30s. Some ice accumulation is possible in spots and the Wednesday morning commute could be slick in places.

For gardeners, farmers and orchard owners, freezing temperatures are expected statewide for two nights in a row, so tender vegetation should be protected as much as possible. Keep in mind that the winds will be very strong, though, so weight down or stake the covers as much as possible.

By the time the weekend rolls around, temperatures climb back into the 70s statewide with our next round of showers and storms Sunday and Monday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
