An area of moderate to heavy snow has been moving across of North-Central, Northeast, and East-Central Kansas on Monday. A band of very heavy snow was stationary for several hours on Monday morning across portions of Riley, Geary, Clay, Dickinson, Cloud, Washington, Pottawatomie, and Marshall counties (including Manhattan, Fort Riley, Junction City, Clay Center, Morganville, Leonardville, Blue Rapids, Riley, and Palmer) resulting in 3-6 inches of heavy, wet snow for those areas. Very slick road conditions and numerous accidents have been reported with the heavy snow.
The snow will quickly move to the SE Monday afternoon with up to 1 inch of accumulation (a few spots could see 2 inches under the heaviest snow bands) for East-Central Kansas including Topeka, Lawrence and Emporia.
Slick roads will certainly be possible as the snow falls. However, when the snow ends, temperatures will warm to near 40 degrees, so road conditions will rapidly improve.
