Snow advisory in effect until 8 a.m.
A winter weather advisory for snow is in effect until 8 a.m. for the Kansas City metro area, and includess Leavenworth, Wyandotte and Johnson counties.
As of 3:30 a.m., the National Weather Service radar indicated a band of light to locally moderate snow falling across the metro area. A steady light snow is expected to continue through the morning rush hour, although the snow may occasionally mix with rain in areas of lighter precipitation.
Although temperatures will remain just above freezing, locally moderate snowfall rates could result in minor snow accumulations early this morning especially on bridges and overpasses. An inch or two of accumulation is possible on grassy surfaces. Precipitation should change back to rain later this morning as the intensity diminishes.
The Kansas Department of Transportation at 5 a.m. today reported said road conditions in the metro area were normal for the season, but to the west as near as Douglas County, KDOT reported slushy, wet conditions on roads.
