Another Round of Ice This Afternoon

Another round of freezing rain will move north into parts of central Kansas and the Flint Hills from midday through the afternoon. Isolated thunderstorms with moderate freezing rain and sleet are also possible. Additional ice accumulations of one to two-tenths of an inch will be possible, especially along and just west of the Kansas turnpike corridor. Temperatures are expected to warm above freezing across most of southeast Kansas this afternoon.

Patchy freezing drizzle will continue throughout the morning across the area with minor accumulations expected. By noon, temperatures should warm above freezing roughly east of I-35, ending the freezing precipitation threat. However for areas west of I-35, an increase in precipitation is expected during the afternoon, with some light freezing rain developing. This second round of freezing rain/freezing drizzle is expected to end by sunset.
