Wintry Precipitation Possible Tonight, Well Below Normal Temperatures Sunday

A storm system approaching from the west will spread areas of wintry precipitation across the region late tonight into Sunday. The highest impacts will likely occur across portions of Nebraska, northern and northeast Kansas and northern Missouri, where snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are likely. Further south, a very light and patchy wintry mix of freezing drizzle, sleet and snow may create isolated slick spots Sunday morning on untreated roads, bridges and sidewalks.

Temperatures in the 20’s and 30’s in concert with breezy northeast winds will produce relatively cold wind chill readings in the teens and 20’s early Sunday morning.

Sunday temperatures will be 20 to 30 degrees cooler than normal, with highs only reaching the 30’s.

Another round of light wintry precipitation is possible late Sunday night into Monday morning in the form of patchy light freezing drizzle across mainly portions of eastern and southeast Kansas. While ice accumulations will likely remain very minimal, patchy slick spots could develop on untreated roads, bridges and sidewalks.
