First Significant Snow of the Season Possible

The first accumulating snow of the season is forecast to fall in Central Kansas later this week.

According to the National Weather Service, an approaching storm system will bring increasing chances for snow in the early morning hours on Wednesday. Snow will spread eastward across the area during the day, before diminishing on in evening.

Gusty northeast winds may result in blowing and drifting snow across mainly Central Kansas.

The highest accumulations are expected to remain along the I-70 corridor where 2-4 inches will be possible. A sharp gradient will exist as you move south, with only trace amounts possible along the Oklahoma state line.
