Bitterly cold start to Saturday before snow chances return

Occurs when rain falls into a layer of air with temperatures below freezing.

The Kansas City metropolitan area could experience freezing drizzle mixed with snow, the weather service said, with totals between a trace and 1 inch.

"It's not freezing rain, but a mist that might freeze and accumulate on elevated surfaces", Hernandez said. Skies will turn sunny by Sunday afternoon as highs reach the low to mid 30s.

Late this week another cold front will slowly move through the region bringing increasing rain chances Friday into early next weekend.

Sunday night: Mostly clear with a low around 21.

Sunshine is back in the forecast for Monday but midweek looks fairly cloudy. Expect lows in the single digits to near zero as you head out the door Sunday morning.

Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches is possible across central Kansas. Ice accumulations less than one-tenth of an inch, but enough in some areas to cause slick travel.

It's also worth noting that during a particular winter storm, snow ratios may increase or decrease to some degree depending on how temperatures evolve in the large-scale weather situation. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 36.

Monday - Sunny, with a high near 42.

We will remain cloudy, dry and cold this evening with temperatures sliding into the upper 20s after sunset. Highs will only be in the low 20s. However, it has been almost three years since we received even two inches of snow in Emporia.

Many areas are under a wind chill advisory.
