Snow Is First Round Of Wintry Mix
KSAL Staff - February 26, 2014 6:26 am
Central Kansas woke up to a thin blanket of snow Wednesday morning, and there could be more of the same on the horizon.
Light snow that began falling Tuesday evening did accumulate in some areas. An inch is reported in Salina, and in Ellsworth county.
According to the National Weather Service in Wichita, two separate weather systems will impact the area late this week into the weekend.
The first system Thursday Night into Friday looks to bring a chance of a light wintry mix of precipitation. A thin glazing of ice is possible.
The next, stronger system is expected to impact the area Saturday Night through Sunday Night. This system will produce snow, sleet and freezing rain across the area, with snow more likely in Central Kansas, and freezing rain more likely in the Southeast. Snow and ice accumulations will be possible, however, amounts are highly uncertain this far out.
Some travel problems are possible Saturday Night through Sunday.
