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.

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.
