Arctic Air Invades Kansas, Making it Even Colder

It's colder today (WED) in eastern Kansas than it has been all winter.  A Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect until noon.  Kris Craven, with the National Weather Service in Topeka, says the strong, cold winds from the north won't let up until mid-afternoon.  

We'll have a high today (WED) of 7 above, but warmer weather is expected tomorrow (THUR), as we climb back into the 20s.
