A major winter storm bears down on Kansas
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect now from 6 a.m. Monday until midnight.
A strong weather system is approaching from the southwest. The National Weather Service said snow is expected Monday morning across much of southwest and south central Kansas and diminish during the evening. Between two and five inches of snow are expected Monday morning along the Kansas/Oklahoma line.
The snow could be heavy at times, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours over central Kansas. About one and two inches of snow are expected in the Wichita area. It may begin as freezing rain or drizzle by afternoon. Less than one inch of snow is expected over far southern and southeast Kansas. Heavier amounts north of Wichita.
Ice accumulations will be light. Most roads will remain wet over southern and southeast Kansas with snow and ice accumulations primarily confined to bridges, overpasses and grassy surfaces. The National Weather Service urges motorists to use caution because periods of travel could be difficult due to slippery roads and limited visibilities.
