A winter storm watch was issued Thursday afternoon and will last until Saturday at 6:00 PM.
Heavy mixed precipitation possible with total snow accumulations of three to six inches and light ice accumulations of around one tenth of an inch possible.
Winds could gust as high as 35 or 40 MPH.
Affected areas including portions of Central, South Central and Southeast Kansas, especially along and east of the Kansas Turnpike.
The storm is expected to begin Friday night and last through Saturday afternoon. After an initial round of rain and a light wintry mix, a more intense area of snow may develop along and east of the Kansas Turnpike on Saturday morning.
Plan on slippery road conditions and areas of blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. Rain will transition to a wintry mix across portions of Central Kansas on Friday afternoon outside of the winter storm watch area. This could also result in slick roads and travel delays.
Target counties in this storm watch include Montgomery, Labette, Neosho, Greenwood, Elk and Chautauqua.
