Wichita and Sedgwick County to see heavy amounts of snow, sleet
Kansas is still on track to see snow today and Thursday, with heavy amounts of snow likely in central Kansas late tonight and Thursday.
Light snow will develop this morning over southern Kansas, and then spread north into central Kansas by early afternoon. Some accumulation is possible with roads becoming snowpacked by early this evening. Some sleet will likely mix with the snow in southern Kansas for tonight, but the threat of freezing rain is likely to stay south in parts of Oklahoma.
Heavy snow will fall tonight and Thursday. Some sleet may mix with the snow, but heavy ice accumulation is not likely. Snowfall amounts of 10-12 inches appear likely for areas like Hays, Great Bend, Salina, Ellsworth, Beloit, Smith Center, and Concordia. 6-10 inches look likely for Hutch, St. John, Dodge City, and west central Kansas. Wichita will probably get 4-6 inches by Thursday afternoon, with some sleet accumulation possible too.
Gusty north winds could create blowing snow tonight and Thursday, so visibility could be restricted for a few hours. The storm will end Thursday night.
