The cold air is already here. Now we’re awaiting a disturbance to work through that will squeeze out just enough freezing drizzle to make conditions slick heading into Wednesday. A Winter Weather Advisory has south-central and southeastern Kansas on alert.
After midnight, we will see an uptick in freezing drizzle in these areas. This drizzle will linger into much of Wednesday before the system departs by Thursday morning.
Ice accumulation could reach up to a tenth of an inch, especially for areas along and southeast of the Turnpike.
Along with the threat for freezing drizzle, flurries are possible out west. Also, freezing fog is a concern for northwestern Kansas heading into Wednesday. Visibility could be quite low and this fog could also enhance slick roadways.
Temperatures won’t warm much on Wednesday.
We do get some help on Thursday with the added bonus of sunshine. There is a quick-moving system on Friday that looks to lightly impact northern Kansas on Friday with a wintry mix.
Much better and widespread snow chances are on deck for this weekend. This is a storm to monitor closely if travel plans are in your future!
