Rain, mix and snow return to KAKEland

Posted: Updated:

Another round of rain, wintry mix and snow rolls into KAKEland late Friday. A range in temperatures across the state will bring lots of variation to the much needed precipitation.

Light rain is expected to start in South Central and Southeast Kansas Friday night between 7 and 10pm. With temperatures above freezing, precipitation will remain in liquid form and slick spots won’t be a major issue. As the moisture surges north into colder air a wintry mix will be possible mainly across Central and North Central Kansas. While this mix is expected to be relatively light it could once again create some slick roads. Thanks to slightly colder temperatures, the predominant precipitation type across Northwest Kansas will be snow with a trace to 3” for most areas. Locally high snow totals will be possible along the US-36 corridor.

The mixed precipitation event will last off and on through the morning hours of Saturday with it slowly exiting east during the afternoon. Northern Kansas could see travel problems through Saturday morning on untreated roads and in areas where precipitation is heavy. Locations across Southern Kansas including Garden City Pratt and Wichita will likely not see problems thanks to warmer temperatures and precipitation falling as rain.
