  • Travel south impacted Saturday – Winter Weather Advisory for heavy snow here in effect generally south of Interstate-80

We're now in the dead of winter, so it shouldn't be too much of a shock that snow is on the forecast this weekend- just a cold one!

Several inches of snow are possible in southeast Iowa as a storm system moves through the region late Friday into the first half of the weekend. Some sleet and freezing rain will arrive Friday morning in Missouri, with snow starting to fall by midday. The steadiest snow is most likely late Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning.

A winter weather advisory means snow will primarily cause travel difficulties.

Enough snow to shovel and plow is forecast from central Kansas to much of Missouri, northern Arkansas, central and southern IL, much of IN, central and northern Kentucky, central and southern OH and much of West Virginia. AccuWeather.com predicts 6 to 12 inches of snow in those areas. But as the sun sets, the rain will likely transition over to snow as temperatures fall below freezing, according to the weather service.

Across the country's midsection, 40 million people are under a winter storm advisory, watch or warning.

Saturday night - Snow, with low temperatures around 28-degrees. Snow spread across Western Kansas during the early afternoon. Flurries will continue Saturday evening before we dry out by Saturday night.

The City of Topeka said street crews are monitoring road and bridge conditions. Minor accumulations are possible, with the higher amounts closest to the southwest along the Mason-Dixon Line and a coating to nothing along the north and east.

Precipitation will change over to just plain rain across far southern and southeastern Virginia.
