How cold did it get in Kansas from November 10-13?

The coldest weather of the season has penetrated Kansas. Based on preliminary data, the coldest low temperatures ranged from -10 degrees F in the northwest to 21 degrees F in the southeast. As would be expected, soil temperatures have dropped significantly in the last week, with the greatest drops seen in the northwest. Despite the extreme cold, to this point no new monthly record low temperatures have been recorded, although Sharon Springs broke a daily record with 9 degrees F on the 11th. Additional new records are likely, as more data is received.
