WICHITA, Kan. -- A winter storm watch has been issued for much of central and eastern Kansas Monday evening through Tuesday evening. This watch does include Wichita, Hutchinson, Great Bend and Salina.

The snow should begin late Monday, ramping up early Tuesday. It could be heavy at times through the day on Tuesday.

Snowfall amounts could get heavy in some locations because the snow will be around from Monday evening all the way through Tuesday evening. The snowfall potential decreases on Wednesday.

Right now, it looks like the heaviest potential for snowfall will be in central Kansas. Many locations could receive 4 to 6 inches of total accumulation, with some locations getting 6+ inches.

The exact storm track remains in question, though it's looking more likely that many locations in KAKEland could get moderate accumulations.
