…a dramatic drop in temperatures on Sunday.
Why are the winds so strong? They’re rushing to equalize pressure farther north, where a powerful zone of low pressure is drawing a blizzard through the northern Plains. Forecasters say temperatures will plunge 60 degrees in less than 48 hours in Montana, from highs of 40 on Friday to -20 on Sunday.
Wichita will also see a dramatic plunge, though not that far. After a high of about 60 today, we’ll be pushing to reach the low 20s on Monday.
Wind chills will drop below zero throughout most of Kansas Sunday night. Those numbers could drop between -10 and -15 in central Kansas.
The cold air and harsh winds will stick around a while, too: Wind chills between 0 and -10 are expected Tuesday night over central and parts of south-central Kansas.
Light snow is expected sporadically during the period as well, though no significant accumulation appears to be likely.
