Snow returns with another round of winter weather in KS
WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Update Monday night, Dec. 14, 2020: Snow will begin to move into western Kansas overnight. This will start in the northwest and make its way to the southeast into early Tuesday morning. Flurries will be possible by 6 a.m. in central Kansas. We’ll keep the chance for snow in the forecast for western Kansas into the afternoon, but with some slightly warmer temperatures in central Kansas, we could have a period of a rain/snow mix. This is most likely to happen between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Then, this will transition back to snow through the rest of the day.
Highest snow totals will be in the west, where Goodland could get around 2-5″ and Dodge City could receive around 1-3″ of snow. Most of central Kansas will have just light snow, with around 1″ possible for Wichita.
SNOW TIMING: Flurries will be possible early in the morning in Wichita, but it could change into a rain/snow mix late in the morning through the early afternoon. It will change back into snow through the rest of the day. #kswx #storm12 pic.twitter.com/xnwH5528bt— Sarah Fletcher (@KWCHSarah) December 15, 2020
