Where is the storm now? - It's still over southern California as I write this at 8 a.m. This is the main driver behind the freezing rain. It comes across Kansas Sunday/Monday time frame. IT WILL BE ICY BEFORE THEN!
Latest ice accumulation from our Future Track model looks like this:
Any freezing precipitation we get between now and Saturday morning will be LIGHT! Not the kind that brings down power lines or trees.
Saturday afternoon - heaviest freezing rain will be focused over southern Kansas
Sunday morning - VERY ICY over much of Kansas - power outages possible (and likely in a few spots)
Sunday afternoon - changing to rain around Wichita/South central Kansas. Western Kansas may still be getting icy weather even Sunday afternoon
Late Sunday night/early Monday - Rain for central and eastern Kansas with SNOW coming into the west. Still looks like northwest Kansas could get 5-8 inches of snow (on top of a thin glaze of ice)
