Rain Then Freezing Rain to Start New Workweek

Winter weather advisory set for midnight

Streets in Kansas City are icing up this morning as freezing rain and thunderstorms move into the area. This could make the Monday morning commute hard.

More winter mixed precipitation ahead later this week.

According to the NWS' warning, freezing rain could also cause slippery roads and walkways, as well as ice accumulations on power lines and trees.

The ice will result in hard travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Monday.

Wednesday, expect a high of 33, with snow showers, sleet and freezing rain possible on Wednesday night, according to the weather service.

Southwest Airlines have canceled almost all flights before 1 p.m. Tuesday, and American and United have canceled some as well. We'll stay in the 40s through Saturday with chances of more rain Friday into early Saturday.

Heavy rain is headed for Central Texas.

The flooding is the result of melting snow, frozen ground and steady rains.

Saturday should be partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 30s.

Tuesday night: Mostly cloudy with a low around 26. Temperatures will then begin to gradually warm to the mid-50's, with a sunny Monday in sight!

The temperature at 7 a.m. was 31 degrees in Wyandotte County. The meteorological winter (December through February) precipitation total (rain plus snow converted to liquid) rose to 3.31 inches, 0.47 inches below normal.
