NWS: A wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow is expected tonight across the entire outlook area. Most locations should receive at least one-tenth of an inch of snow and sleet accumulation, with upwards of 1 to 2 inches possible in a zone extending from central to northeast Kansas. Locations south of I-70 may receive one-tenth to two-tenths of an inch of ice accumulation overnight with up to one-tenth of an inch of ice accumulation possible north of I-70.  Areas of freezing rain will transition to freezing drizzle during the morning hours. Locations along and south of a Minneapolis to Holton line may see areas of freezing drizzle transition over to drizzle during the afternoon hours. Additional daytime ice accumulations of up to around one-tenth of an inch will be possible.

KSNT-TV:  Another round of winter weather will move into our area (from the south) between 7-10pm. We’re looking at accumulating snow and sleet – and even the potential for more ice, heading into tomorrow morning. Take your time and prepare for tonight. The snow/sleet/ice will all be over with between 7 and 9am tomorrow. Overnight and morning commuters will be affected. – Kyle Borchert
