NWS predicts significant snowfall this weekend


The National Weather Service in Topeka is forecasting the likelihood of widespread accumulating snow this weekend.

“The first wave of snow will come on Saturday, mainly between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., with three to six inches expected by 9 p.m.,” said a release from NWS. “There may be a brief lull into early Sunday, but re-development is likely with additional accumulation through Sunday.”

Additional snowfall may continue through Tuesday, with total accumulation of five to 10 inches possible in some areas, with heavier areas in the north part of the county into Shawnee County.

“The main uncertainty in this forecast is in how much additional snow will fall Saturday night and Sunday, as there is some potential for a band of heavy snow to set up, but it’s not a guarantee,” the report said. “There is also a small chance for sleet or freezing rain to mix in south of I-70 on Sunday.

The NWS said precipitation will end by Sunday evening, but another storm system will likely impact the area late Monday into Tuesday.
