KSN Threat Tracker for Friday, January 13, 2017


9:41PM Coming at the top of the hour on KSN News at 10, we’ll continue to track the winter storm. A few patchy areas of light freezing drizzle and freezing rain are showing up on radar at this hour–but the worst is yet to come.

4:06PM Weekend winter storm system still looking like it will be very troublesome. While tonight into Saturday will likely see just light amounts of freezing drizzle and freezing rain, there will still be slick spots especially on elevated roadways. Then, late Saturday into the rest of the weekend the ice storm is poised to create difficulties. We will see enough ice accumulation in the Western part of Kansas to likely lead to not only hazardous driving but also power outages and widespread tree damage.
