Freezing drizzle sneaks back into KAKEland

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

Drizzle and light freezing drizzle are possible late Tuesday through Wednesday as a south wind draws moist air across a shallow layer of cold air. While this precipitation is expected to be very light, slick spots will be possible, especially on untreated roads.

The biggest threat from the drizzle will come early on Wednesday. South Central and Southeast Kansas could see light drizzle early in the morning and this could lead to some slick spots on roads. This light freezing drizzle will be possible through much of the day on Wednesday, especially South and East of the Kansas Turnpike.

Late Wednesday into very early Thursday morning, the drizzle is expected to come to an end and road conditions should improve.

The precipitation on Wednesday is not expected to be overly heavy but isolated slick areas could lead to traffic problems. Elevated roadways and roads that go untreated will need to be monitored closely in the Wichita area. Extra time should be factored into your morning drive Wednesday.
