UPDATE: Roads across south-central Kansas are a mess this morning. Slush is the main concern. We've heard of several slide-offs in Wichita, Reno County and other places. Thankfully, there have been no reports of any serious injuries.
Be careful out there.
Meteorologist Jake Dunne says it’s a wet and snowy start to our Wednesday and you should plan on a slower than normal morning commute. Most of the accumulating snow is over, but area roads are slushy. Expect the rain and snow to come to an end by midday with better weather expected by the Wednesday evening drive.

Warmer weather is headed our way this weekend. Highs in the 40s on Friday should climb into the 50s on Saturday and Sunday. We even have an outside chance of 60 degrees early next week.
