WICHITA — Two weather systems are expected to impact south central Kansas Friday through Sunday.
The first weather system will bring a chance of a light freezing rain and sleet late Thursday into Friday morning.
A thin glazing of ice is possible on untreated surfaces. The next, stronger weather system is expected to impact the area Saturday night through Sunday night.
Saturday’s system will produce snow, sleet and freezing rain across the area, with snow more likely in central Kansas, and freezing rain more likely in the southeast.
A 70 percent chance of sleet and freezing rain is forecast across much of south central Kansas Saturday night. The forecast predicts a 60 percent chance of snow Sunday with a high near 13 degrees. Up to two inches of snow is possible in central Kansas by Sunday afternoon.
Freezing rain looks highly likely in southeast Kansas with 0.10 to 0.25 inch of icing possible by Sunday morning.
Snow and ice accumulations appear increasingly likely, however, amounts are uncertain this far out. Significant travel problems are possible Saturday night through Sunday.
