Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 6 pm Wednesday through 9 am Thursday.

Posted: Jan 16, 2019 7:35 AM

**Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 6 pm Wednesday through 9 am Thursday for Doniphan and Atchison Counties in northeast Kansas & Buchanan, Andrew, Platte, Dekalb, Clinton, Daviess and Caldwell Counties in northwest Missouri.**

We are still dealing with cloudy skies across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri for Wednesday. A few areas of patchy fog will be found across the area so be careful heading out this morning if you run into low visibility. Temperatures will remain in the lower to middle 30s throughout the rest of the workweek. We'll have another disturbance push through Wednesday night into Thursday with additional chances of light snow and some freezing rain mixed in. Roads could be slick and slippery so there will be a few concerns for the Thursday morning commute. 

Beyond that, attention turns to another system that could bring more wintry weather to the area on Friday into Saturday. Heavy snow is possible and windy conditions are likely. Still a few days out, but we will be keeping a close eye on it. Still too early to determine snowfall totals. Behind that system, very cold air will move in by Sunday with single digit to below zero temperature wind chills. It's possibly the coldest air of the season so far. We will be paying close attention to that, especially if you're heading out to the Chiefs game Sunday evening.

A cold front is currently moving through our area this morning dropping temperatures into the lower 40s and upper 30s. Today will be a cool day with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s with increasing clouds. Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s tonight. We could see a few areas of light rain and drizzle this evening, but precipitation chances will start to increase overnight into tomorrow morning. With the sub freezing temperatures, precipitation will transition from light rain and drizzle in the evening to snow overnight into Tuesday morning. Snowfall will continue through the morning hours on Tuesday before transitioning to a rain/snow mix while it exits the area. Most areas will see around 1-3 inches. Accumulations will stay mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces, but expect slushy road conditions Tuesday morning. Conditions will slowly start to improve for the rest of the work week with sunshine returning and temperatures slowly warming. Rain chances will return for the end of the work week.
