Thanksgiving storm - still on the way

Good Tuesday morning everyone. This busy week continues and so many questions about travel weather. Feel free to post a question on my Facebook page and I'll do my best to follow up with you regarding the kind of conditions we expect. 

Wichita to KC: wet roads
Wichita to Salina: wet roads
Wichita to OKC: wet roads
Salina to Hays: wet roads to start/some icy spots possible closer to Hays
Great Bend to KC: wet roads

There will be some locally heavy rainfall Thursday for Thanksgiving Day. In fact, it might be the wettest Thanksgiving on record for some locations. The forecast models are indicating over an inch, especially for south central and eastern Kansas.

As the wintry weather sets in for many areas Thursday night, there won't be much snow accumulation. In most cases, it will be less than inch for Kansas. So confidence is high, this will not be a big snow maker for the Plains.

The weather calms a bit for Friday, but into Saturday, we will be watching another round of moisture sneaking up from the south. It will likely lead to a wintry mix of some rain or snow. Although there may be a few hours of some icy conditions early Saturday, it is not looking to be a big ice storm and most roads will improve by mid to late morning Saturday.

So Ross, what are you thinking about I-70 from Kansas City to Salina on Friday? Look to be fairly easy?

Most people that are driving travel on Wed, what's that look like?
