4:53PM Coming up on KSN News at 5, we’ll track the coming winter storm and give you the latest on the weekend. As you can see below in our briefing from earlier today we are wrestling with some tough forecast issues. But it is clear that some parts of Kansas will have difficult travel conditions this weekend. Join us at 5, and make sure you have our KSN Storm Tracker 3 Everywhere app for the coming weekend.

2:00PM Check out Dave and Katie’s latest update:

12:45PM Freezing drizzle will be possible in southern Kansas tomorrow, then our main concern is for heavy freezing rain causing ice accumulations across the entire state Saturday through Sunday, switching over to snow in western Kansas by Monday. Travel is strongly discouraged, and downed tree limbs with power outages are likely this weekend – stick with KSN for the latest, and make sure you’re taking advantage of the quiet weather today to prepare!


11:45AM We’ve got a lot to talk about for the upcoming weekend… I’ll time out this winter storm, then update you on the latest ice accumulation forecast, straight ahead on KSN News at Noon!


7:00AM Today will be almost 30 degrees colder than yesterday, but at lest we aren’t dealing with any freezing rain… Yet…….. A very significant ICE storm will likely impact Kansas this weekend with ice accumulations of .25″-.5″ and if temps stay colder we could see even more!! Today will be a good day to fill up the car and get some groceries in the pantry because you probably won’t want to get out this weekend… Of course with ice accumulations of more than .25″ one of the biggest concerns is power outages due to downed trees and power lines. Stay tuned to KSN and ksn.com/weather as we continue to track this developing winter storm.


5:00AM You’ll notice that winter’s chill is back this morning across the state with wind chills running in the low single digit to sub zero range. Other than the cold temps, today should be fairly quiet… A major winter storm and significant icing is possible this weekend. Join us on Kansas Today for the latest.
