Be advised: Winter weather to impact much of Kansas, Holiday says

The northern half of Kansas will see measurable snow between now and the end of the day on Wednesday. That’s why a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued that begins later on Tuesday.

“The amount of snow is going to be higher in parts of northwestern Kansas and the north-central sections of the state,” said meteorologist Dan Holiday. “We may see around 1-2 inches in the Topeka area. As you go further north, near the Nebraska line that’s where we are more likely to see 2-4 inches of snow.”

Late Tuesday night is when this will likely change over from a rain event.

“Colder air moves in as the upper level part of the storm comes in out of the Rockies,” said Holiday. “That’s where we will see some rain, mixed with snow at times and again, freezing drizzle as well, too, as temperatures fall below that 32 degree mark. The mix of precipitation will likely continue overnight into Wednesday with accumulating snowfall more likely later on in the afternoon and into Wednesday night.”

Though temperatures will be unseasonably cold on Thursday, highs should still get enough above freezing to clear off any minor travel impacts.
