Winter weather advisories extended for Lyon, several surrounding counties National Weather Service graphic

There won't be much in the way of precipitation across the KVOE listening area for Thanksgiving, but it may be enough to cause some slick spots.

Given the possible travel impact, the National Weather Service has issued winter weather advisories for most of the listening area and it has now extended them for most affected counties. Lyon, Morris and Wabaunsee counties are now in an advisory from 6 am to 6 pm, starting the alert two hours earlier than originally listed. Chase County is now in an advisory from 5 am to 5 pm, extending that advisory from a 1 pm end time. Greenwood County is in a separate advisory from 5 am to 1 pm. That alert is currently unchanged.

A wintry mix of snow and sleet is expected through early afternoon before changing over to a cold rain as temperatures push to the mid-30s. Up to an inch of snowfall is expected in Emporia, along with up to a tenth of an inch of ice. Snow amounts could reach up to two inches further west.

With temperatures hovering around or slightly below freezing for the morning hours, the main travel concerns will be before noon. Thursday night's temperatures should remain just above freezing, so any travel issues should be limited to elevated surfaces like bridges and overpasses.
