Western’s Weather Wrap: Winter Storm Arrives Tonight

Temperatures will be unusually mild today in the 60s and 70s with very strong south winds and plenty of clouds. Enjoy the mild weather while it lasts….which won’t be long!

Storm Tracker Radar is quiet for now, but a *Winter Weather Advisory* is in effect through noon tomorrow for mainly northern and western counties due to potential whiteout conditions tonight into tomorrow morning.

Snow will begin in northwestern Kansas around 10 PM, with rain showers out ahead of that for central Kansas. Then the cold air will transition this rain to snow from northwest to southeast across the state into the morning, becoming heavy at times.

Travel will be very hazardous, especially around I-70 tonight into tomorrow morning. The very strong north winds will cause blizzard conditions in our northern and central counties, strongly impacting the morning commute. For the Wichita area, we aren’t expecting as much snow, but the rain may freeze and cause some slick spots on the roads, so please be very cautious and allow yourself some extra time in the morning.

I’ll have the latest on how much snow we’re expecting in total on KSN News at Noon, or you can watch my latest forecast right here: http://ksn.com/2017/03/08/weather-forecast-discussion/
