Monday's snow-maker will slowly pull away from Kansas New Year's Day after dumping nearly ten inches in a few spots.
Roads will still be snow-packed and icy through most of the day so travelers beware and allow extra time to get to your destination.
One last stripe of light snow will exit southeast Kansas early Tuesday afternoon as clouds break for sunhine in their wake. Despite clearing skies afternoon high temperatures will only struggle into the mid and upper-20s. Northerly winds will be running at 5 to 15 mph so plan on wind chills in the teens as we start 2013 on a fairly frigid note.
Look for sunshine and dry weather for the remainder of our abbreviated work week as high temperatures warm into the 30s and 40s.
