Spring storm moves east, bringing snow to Colorado and Kansas

GOODLAND, Kansas (AP) — A spring storm moving into western and northern Kansas is packing high winds, freezing drizzle and some snow.

The National Weather Service on Tuesday issued a winter weather advisory for several counties in western and northern Kansas. Forecasts call for light snow across the region, with freezing drizzle and winds gusts from about 30 mph to about 55 mph.

Forecasts also called for 1 to 2 inches of snow, but the snow and high winds were expected to end by late Tuesday.

Sam Beeson, dispatcher for the Cheyenne County Sheriff’s Department in northwest Kansas, says roads in that area were icing up early Tuesday. He says there were reports of tornadoes in the area late Monday and early Tuesday, but no damage or injuries were reported.
