8pm Winter Update: Kansas

Here is the radar at 7:50pm and I have superimposed the cold front with the dashed blue line.
Winds along and behind the front are gusting to 40 mph and temperatures will drop at least 10° within an hour of when the front passes. There are numerous reports of blizzard conditions with visibility 50' in some areas. Kansas Highway Patrol reports numerous slideoffs on I-135 north of Wichita.

Interstate 70 is still closed from Hays to Denver.

UPDATE:
US 283 now closed from Dodge City to Jetmore.

Behind the cold front, which should reach Wichita by around 8:45-9pm, conditions are extremely hazardous. Urge you not to drive unless an emergency.
