Frigid temperatures pouring in..below zero?

Take a look at the surface map below:

As you can see, the single digits and brutally cold below zero temperatures are pouring into the area tonight. This next map is showing my below zero temperature forecast lows for Thursday morning.

Now with these frigid temperatures in place, there will also be some wind tonight and tomorrow between 10 and 20 mph. This will create dangerous windchill values. This is the reaso why the NWS has issuesd a Windchill Advisory for the area, and a Windchill Warning for areas north and northeast of I-70.
The cold weather will continue through the day tomorrow and tomorrow night. Most locations Thursday will not make it out of the single digits. The windchill will continue to remain -5 to -25 derees through the day Thursday, but they will modrate later in the day as the high pressure sets in and the winds calm.
Locations Thursday night will likely be in below zero again in many spots. Now Friday is a trcky forecast as warm air is trying to surge in. It will be in he 50's in western Kansas Friday, and highs in our area will likely be in the upper 20 to the low to mid 30's.
Warm air will continue to pour in next week with 40's, 50's, and 60's expected before a big change showing up.
