Numerous roads across western and central Kansas are snow-packed and icy as a winter storm moves across the state.
Some of the worst conditions were reported Wednesday in Hays, Salina, Hutchinson and Plainville. Kansas Department of Transportation spokeswoman Ann Williamson advised people to stay off the roads if possible. She says it gives crews a chance to work.
National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Jakub says a storm has been dumping freezing rain and sleet across south-central Kansas. He says snow is falling to the north of Wichita, with 1 to 3 inches expected. He says numerous accidents have been reported in the Wichita area, particularly on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses.
The storm is expected to move out of the state by late Thursday morning.
