Here's the track the storm will take:
Heaviest snow is going to go north of Kansas, into Nebraska and Iowa. It wouldn't be a surprise at all to see some areas get a foot of snow. But this is a fast moving storm and the wind with it will be pretty gusty. So a few hours of blizzard like conditions will set in.
The chance for rain on Wednesday will be a bit of a close call, and maybe not the most promising storm. We expect a front to move through the area, which should help to trigger a few showers and some thunderstorms. But if the front moves through faster than what we are expecting now, our chances of rain will go farther east.
Are we turning the corner on the drought? Not likely. Just look at the forecast for rainfall over the next 16 days. It's not encouraging for southwest Kansas at all. Eastern Kansas may catch some periodic light rain events, but I don't see any good soaking rains coming this way anytime soon. More active weather is expected east of us, and chances for snow will be moving back across the northern Plains, but for Kansas, I don't like these 2 week outlooks that have little to no substantial moisture for central and western part of the state.
