Light to moderate snow will continue this evening, especially in parts of central and northern Kansas. Any additional accumulation will generally be under an inch or two. Light snow will transition to some light freezing drizzle in and around the Wichita area this evening, so be very careful if you have New Year's festivities to attend. Roads across Kansas are or will become icy as lows drop down to the teens.
Clouds will be quite thick for much of the area on New Year's Day but breaks will be developing in the northwest and west. Highs will struggle to reach the middle to upper 20s with winds under 15 mph.
More sunshine will be around the rest of the abbreviated work week as high temperatures warm to the 30s and 40s.
