NWS predicting up to an inch of snow for weekend
There's still time for 2010 to have a white Christmas and according to the National Weather Service, it's likely to happen. Precipitation could begin falling on the area tonight, after midnight. According to the NWS, this would be in the form of light snow flurries and sleet, with a total accumulation of less than a half inch.
The real potential for a white Christmas will come with a winter storm after sunrise on Friday, Dec. 24. This storm has the potential to leave De Soto with up to an inch of snow.
Those traveling for the holiday are encouraged to watch the forecast, according to the NWS, as conditions could change in the next 24 hours. Road conditions can be viewed online on the Kansas Department of Transportation's website and on mobile devices at http://511mm.ksdot.org/.
