More Snow On The Horizon

Todd Pittenger - February 1, 2014 7:08 am

A winter storm system that brought sleet and snow to parts of Kansas is a prelude to expected multiple days of accumulating snow over the next week.

A mix of sleet and snow fell over a large part of Kansas Friday into Saturday.

According to National Weather Service preliminary reports, some of the heaviest snow in Central Kansas fell in the Ellsworth area, where 3 inches was reported. Lincoln reported an inch of snow. In Salina, 1.5 inches was reported. Lindsborg reported 1.4 inches. To the north, Minneapolis reported 2 inches and Concordia reported 3.8 inches. To the east, Chapman checked in with 3 inches.

Forecasters say that the next couple of days should be dry but cold.

A strong winter storm is anticipated late Monday into Tuesday, with a good chance for accumulating snow.

Then late Thursday into Friday more accumulating snow is a possibility.

It is still too soon to predict snowfall amounts, or the areas that should get the most snow.
