Snow to sweep through Kansas, Oklahoma on Christmas
The storm coming out of the Rockies will spread snow across much of the central Plains through Christmas. Although heavy amounts of snow are not likely in Kansas, there could be some 5-7 inch snowfall amounts throughout central Oklahoma.
The snow will begin in western Kansas overnight and spread east into Christmas Day. The snow should remain light, but as the wind picks up from the north, blowing snow will be a concern, especially in western and southern Kansas.
Snowfall amounts near Wichita will be one inch or less. Some areas south of Dodge City could see 3-5 inches of accumulation by the time the storm ends Christmas night. Travel conditions could be slow going, especially if heading south into Oklahoma for Christmas Day. It would be a good idea to call ahead and check road conditions before heading out.
Temperatures will be bitterly cold through midweek with highs in the teens and low 20s, and wind chills subzero for much of the area.
