The latest situation report puts the estimate at 4-6 inches of snow in the Junction City – Manhattan area with a lower chance of freezing drizzle. Snow is expected to accumulate Tuesday into Wednesday morning.
Periods of light to moderate snow are expected to begin farther north and west on Tuesday and spread eastward across the entire area by late afternoon. Light snow mixes with freezing drizzle during the overnight hours. Impact area will include all of northeastern, north, central and east-central Kansas. Best chances for light freezing drizzle are generally along and south of the Kansas Turnpike ( I-135 ). Higher snowfall totals are possible north and west of that line.
The National Weather Service does report that the confidence in the location of the highest snowfall totals remains somewhat uncertain with the highest amounts currently over north central Kansas. Any subtle shift in the storm track may alter snowfall amounts and locations.
