GOODLAND, Kansas (AP) – A winter storm with heavy snow is expected to hit western and northern sections of Kansas.

The National Weather Service on Sunday issued winter storm warnings and watches for sections of the state from early Monday through noon Tuesday. The weather service says some areas could get up to eight inches of snow.

The heaviest snowfall is forecast Monday night into Tuesday, particularly for areas north of Interstate 70.

Winds gusting up to 30 miles per hour are also expected with the storm, which could reduce visibility and make travel hazardous.
