After severe weather over the weekend, winter weather returns to the area to begin the work week.
There is not any significant accumulation with light snow that fell overnight, but it has caused some slick spots to begin Monday morning. Kansas State Troopers were busy at around 6:00 in the morning, working three crashes south of Salina on Interstate 135 at milepost 78, the north Lindsborg exit. At least one person is injured. The injured person was struck after stopping to help.
According to the National Weather Service, big spring time temperature swings are expected in the next 24 hours. A hard freeze is expected monday night, with overnight lows in the low to middle 20s. This should provide very chilly viewing for a lunar eclipse between 2 and 330am.
Warmer temperatures will return for Tuesday with highs climbing to near 60.
