The prospect of up to 3 inches of snow and a mix of freezing drizzle or sleet for Sunday and Monday has caused some area residents to stock up on certain supplies.


At Bluestem Farm and Ranch Supply, manager Bruce Burenheide says there has been more traffic recently.

At Waters Hardware, manager Angelica Barajas says there hasn't been much winter weather traffic just yet. She says the store is fully stocked with ice melt, shovels, scrapers and other items if needed.

The current forecast calls for snow and freezing rain for Sunday afternoon, with freezing rain as the main concern Sunday night before another wintry mix period for much of Monday. So far, Interstate 35 and US Highway 50 are now setting up as the dividing line between heavier totals of mostly snow to the north and lighter totals of mixed precipitation to the south.

There is still a lot of uncertainty with the forecast, including precipitation timing, amounts and duration. Be sure to stay with KVOE, KVOE.com and KVOE social media for updates.
