WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 5 PM THURSDAY TO NOON CST FRIDAY…
For the counties of…
Russell, Lincoln, Barton, Ellsworth, Saline, Rice, McPherson, Marion, and Chase.
Including the cities of Russell, Lincoln, Sylvan Grove, Great Bend, Ellsworth, Wilson, Salina, Lyons, Sterling, McPherson, Hillsboro, Marion, Peabody, Cottonwood Falls, and Strong City.
* WHAT…Mixed precipitation expected. Total snow accumulations of up to one inch and ice accumulations of up to two tenths of an inch. Winds gusting as high as 35 mph.
* WHERE…Central, South Central and Southeast Kansas.
* WHEN…From 5 PM Thursday to noon CST Friday.
* IMPACTS…Slick roads, parking lots, and sidewalks are expected. Even a small amount of ice accumulation can create hazardous conditions and could impact the Thursday evening and Friday morning commutes.
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…In south central and southeast Kansas, snow followed by mixed precipitation is expected Thursday afternoon and early evening while freezing rain appears more likely later in the evening and overnight periods. In central Kansas, snow and/or sleet may persist longer before transitioning to a wintry mix. Therefore, the main concern at this time for southern areas within the advisory will be lighter snow amounts but greater ice accumulation (up to around two tenths of an inch) from freezing rain. Further north in central Kansas, lighter ice accumulation but potentially a heavier snow/sleet accumulation will be the primary concern.
Slow down and use caution while traveling.
