Winter Weather Advisory in Effect: Drive Safely, Allow Extra Time for Commute
Residents across south central Kansas are advised to prepare for slick roads as a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until noon Wednesday. The National Weather Service has warned of slushy roads on the morning commute and has asked drivers to slow down and leave plenty of space between them and other vehicles.
The winter storm that cut across Missouri left behind slippery roads for the morning commute in Kansas City. Snow and rain have been across most of north-central Kansas overnight, creating hazardous conditions. RideKC buses are running their regular schedules but with potential delays of up to 30-60 minutes due to weather.
Numerous school districts in the Kansas City area have closed or delayed due to the inclement weather. The storm is expected to drop a trace to two inches of snowfall by Wednesday morning, along a line from Dodge City to Topeka. Residents are encouraged to use the WICHway app or http://WICHWay.org for road conditions. Drivers should also allow extra time for their commute and drive safely.
