The record low for Thursday at K.C.I. Airport- the "official" NWS weather observation station since 1972- is -12-degrees below-zero- set just 15 years ago that date in 1996.
Metro Kansas City will see temperatures at or near that record tomorrow morning.
Thankfully- there'll be very little wind to make matters worse.
As a small consolation- parts of deep South Texas and the Texas as well as Louisiana-Mississippi and Alabama Gulf coast areas could see an ice and/or snowstorm beginning later Thursday.
