Snow and mix possible across Kansas this weekend

Posted: Updated:
WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Winter cold returns Friday with snow and mix possible as we go through the weekend.

Light snow will be possible along and north of I-70 Friday night into Saturday morning. South Central and Southeast Kansas could see light wintry mix very late Friday through Saturday morning.

A second round of snow will develop across Northern Kansas during the early to mid afternoon Saturday. During the late day hours, this band of snow fall will slowly track south across KAKEland. As the snow band slides south, it will likely decrease in coverage and intensity.

At this time, it looks like the snow will reach Wichita very late Saturday or early Sunday morning. Snow will gradually taper off Sunday morning across Southern Kansas with sunshine returning during the afternoon.

The heaviest snow accumulation is expected along and north of Interstate 70 where 2 to 4 inches of snow will be possible. South of I-70, snow totals will be lighter, generally less than 2 inches with some spots picking up nothing.

If a wintry mix develops early Saturday, travel across South Central and Southeast Kansas could turn a bit treacherous on untreated roads. Additional travel headaches could develop across Northern Kansas Saturday. Snow accumulation could lead to slick spots Saturday afternoon and heavy snow could reduce visibility late in the day. With lighter snow totals south, major travel issues are not anticipated.

It is important to point out, that this is a very early look at the weekend forecast. Minor changes in temperatures and timing could create big changes in the overall precipitation forecast. Stay tune for updates and alerts as the weekend approaches.
