WICHITA, Kansas – A significant winter storm continues to move into Kansas. Snow will become heavy on Tuesday before diminishing and ending late Tuesday evening.
Snow accumulations will reach upwards of 6-12 inches by Tuesday evening with 6-9 inches expected in the Wichita area. In addition, considerable blowing and drifting in central and south central Kansas will make driving even more difficult.
The western third of Kansas could see 3 to 6 inches of snow.
The snow will continue to accumulate in the northeast and eastern Kansas Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
Accumulations there will likely end in the 6-12 inch range.
Travel impacts will likely persist into Wednesday morning. The heavy snow and significant wind will result in blowing and drifting and reduced visibility. It appears travel in much of Kansas will be very hazardous or impossible.
After the snow ends, bitter Arctic cold will settle into Kansas. And the KSN Storm Tracker 3 Meteorologists are already tracking another winter storm system for later this week.
