Snowfall forecast dwindles for Wichita

The National Weather Service is now projecting a trace to 2 inches of snow for Wichita from the approaching winter storm.

Computer models are now suggesting the storm track has ticked north a bit, forecaster Kevin Darmofal said, so temperatures will stay warm enough that rain won’t change to snow until late Saturday night.

Northern Kansas and southern Nebraska will see heavier snow, Darmofal said, and most of Kansas will receive “beneficial precipitation” in some form – rain or snow.

“That’s the good news,” Darmofal said.

The bad news if anyone traveling north from the Wichita metropolitan area could experience issues with road conditions, so stay tuned to the evolving storm.
