Wichita, KS Overnight Lightning and Winter Mix – 2/7/2019

The third day in a row of icy weather across south-central Kansas culminated with a unique event overnight in Wichita where a cluster of multi-cellular thunderstorms formed with temperatures in the low 20s dropping sleet and lighting the sky with lightning and rumbles of thunder. As the night wore on, a combination of the sleet and freezing drizzle added to already slickened road conditions to make for slow travel as K-DOT crews tirelessly kept treating roadways to keep ahead of the storm.
