Blowing and drifting snow Tuesday

Updated forecasts call for perhaps an inch or two of snow in the Wichita area, with strong northerly winds causing blowing and drifting snow and poor driving conditions – particularly Tuesday morning.

Snowfall should end in the Wichita area by late Tuesday afternoon.

Monitor forecasts and conditions closely.

Wichita’s first snow of the season looms

Forecasters say an inch or more of snow is expected to fall in the Wichita area early Tuesday – but it’s the wind that promises to be the bigger issue.

Steady north winds of 30 miles an hour, with gusts even higher than that, will make travel in the region challenging, forecasters warn – especially on east-west roads such as Kellogg/U.S. 400.

The morning commute in the Wichita area figures to be a challenge Tuesday, so plan ahead….and keep an eye on forecasts.
