Here’s a check of some of the snow totals as of 8AM!
The winds don’t look too strong with this storm but nonetheless, travelers in northern Kansas will want to be prepared for areas of blowing snow which may reduce visibility.
Throughout the morning, most of snow should be confined to the northern half of the state, along I-70. This is where we’re expecting the most accumulation — although it’s not much.
Snow to clear from west to east through the afternoon. By the evening commute, a quick burst of snow is possible around the Wichita metro. Roads shouldn’t be too bad but you’ll want to take it easy.
Winter weather to clear out late this evening.
Clouds clear out overnight and temperatures tumble back into the teens.
This storm doesn’t have a lot of moisture to work with, in fact recent data points most of the snow to fall farther to the north. Anywhere from 1 to 4″ north. Isolated higher amounts expected — especially in northwest Kansas.
