Much Colder Today; More Rain, Winter Weather Possible

Much Colder Today; More Rain, Winter Weather Possible

Icy in northern parts of the area. Ice accumulations of less than one tenth of an inch are expected, but mainly along the Iowa border, northeast to around Hastings, Minnesota.

Tonight will be quiet but a couple more rounds of winter weather are lurking in the forecast.

"Uncertainty exists in the precipitation type and amounts with this forecast", the weather service tweeted late Tuesday afternoon. Kansas City Public Schools was one of the only metro schools in session. Authorities have not said whether that person was hospitalized afterward.

Multiple wrecks have been reported on southbound Interstate 35 and Gardner Road in Johnson County.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS.Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times. Slick travel conditions possible across most of Kansas east of Hays overnight. County Engineer Chip Woods says at least two rounds of drivers will be on duty Tuesday, so crews will be fresh all day.

So far this has been a wet week. Those were spot-treated by city crews. The latest road conditions for Minnesota can be found at 511mn.org and for Wisconsin at 511wi.gov, or by calling 5 1 1 in either state.

Northwest of DFW, it will reach freezing, so a Winter Weather Advisory has been posted in the areas northwest of Fort Worth.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until noon Thursday. "And so, with the temperatures below freezing and the freezing rain, we are expecting some ice accumulation, and we are anticipating that there will be travel problems as a result of that".

Stay tuned for important updates!

An already unsettled weather pattern is making things uncertain for the next 24 to 48 hours.

There is another chance of a wintry mix late Wednesday night into Thursday morning as moisture moves back into the area from the south as temperatures remain below freezing. "Most of the freezing rain will be on elevated surfaces" such as bridges, branches, power lines and elevated routes. During that time, up to 2 inches of snow are expected to fall in the lowlands south and west of Puget Sound. For example, we usually use a 10:1 snow ratio where two-tenths of an inch of liquid precipitation equates to two inches of snow, but if the air is cold enough the ratio could be 15:1 or 20:1.
