KANSAS CITY, Mo. — While many see snow flurries flying across the sky, parts of the Kansas City area could see further accumulation of snow Tuesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory beginning at 3 p.m. Tuesday and ending at 6 a.m. Wednesday.

The following counties are included in the advisory: Atchison, Doniphan, Leavenworth, Wyandotte and Johnson in Kansas and Atchison, Nodaway, Worth, Gentry, Holt, Andrew, De Kalb, Buchanan, Clinton, Platte, Clay and Jackson in Missouri.

Many people in the Kansas City area have already seen snow showers Tuesday morning. Add in temperatures of 30 degrees and wind chills in the low 20s, and you’ve got yourself a real winter for a change in Kansas City.

The FOX4 Weather Team and the NWS said more snow was expected from this slow-moving storm Tuesday afternoon.

FOX4’s Joe Lauria is waiting a dusting to 1 inch for most, no more than 2 inches. Meanwhile, the NWS said the accumulation would likely be less than 2 inches.

But snow could sometimes impair visibility and make roads slippery during Tuesday evening travel.

Many city and state road crews were preparing for the latest winter weather.

The Shawnee Public Works Department began pre-treating all major and residential roads in the city Tuesday morning, just before the snow began to fall. City staff hope early salting of roads will help avoid any icy conditions.

“Based on current conditions, we hope this pretreatment will keep the roads passable, and we won’t necessarily need crews to plow later in the day, but we will have a crew on site overnight to monitor snowfall. conditions and respond as necessary,” said Doug Donahoo, spokesperson for the city of Shawnee.

Shawnee sent 10 drivers Tuesday morning to salt the roads. As it is the day after Christmas, the pre-processing operation took a little longer than usual.

“It’s a bit of a smaller crew just because we’re currently between Christmas and New Year; it will take about 6 to 8 hours, so a full day,” Donahoo explained.

“If they had a bigger crew it would take a little less time, but that’s just to make sure they get the salt down to hopefully prevent anything from sticking in the street or thrives in icy conditions.”

Several other cities, including Independence and Raymore, also have snow removal crews to treat roads.

“Drive a little slower, give yourself plenty of time between cars, and when you’re out and about, make sure you have a jacket or blanket in your car in case you need it or something might happen to you. in this regard.’” Donahoo said.

This storm will continue through Wednesday, so the chance of additional snow will slowly move away and move toward central Missouri.

The system will finally be far enough away from us on Thursday to allow the sun to return, but windy conditions will persist even then.

For fans of big snowstorms, there is no good news in the near future. We still don’t see any semblance of an organized winter storm that would significantly impact the area with lots of snow during the first week of January.
