Chances of winter weather impacting the local area continue to rise as the National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories for the majority of the KVOE listening area.

Advisories for Lyon, Morris and Wabaunsee counties will go into effect from 8 am to 6 pm Thursday. Separately an advisory for Chase and Greenwood counties will go into effect from 5 am to 1 pm Thursday.

TV-13 meteorologist Doug Meyers says we could get light snow and a thin glaze of ice, thanks to a wintry mix of precipitation for the morning and early afternoon hours. Up to an inch of snow and maybe a tenth of an inch of ice is possible. Meyers expects the wintry mix to start shortly before sunrise and change to rain by early afternoon. He also says the frozen precip should melt as temperatures climb to the mid-30s by late afternoon.

Further north and west, like western Kansas, much of Colorado and Nebraska, areas hard-hit by heavy snowfall Tuesday could have a round of light snowfall as well. Highways are partly to completely covered in north-central, northwest and western Kansas on Wednesday.
