Light snow, freezing drizzle to continue travel hazards; numerous area schools delay classes Monday


Light snow and freezing drizzle are possible Monday, while biting cold is guaranteed all this week.

Parts of the KVOE listening area are dealing with their second winter weather advisory in three days. Coffey and Osage counties are in an advisory until 11 am Monday, while Greenwood County is in a separate advisory until 3 pm. A mix of snow and freezing drizzle, perhaps up to half an inch of total accumulation, is possible in Coffey County. A thin glaze of freezing drizzle is possible in Greenwood County. Light snow and freezing drizzle may be widespread across the listening area.

It’s the latest possibility for light wintry precipitation across the area. KVOE listeners got a dusting of snowfall Sunday and anywhere from 0.20-1.4 inches of snowfall Saturday. Travel is slow going across Emporia, with the dusting of snow covering all streets and hiding already slick spots on residential collectors and side streets. City, county and KDOT road crews are out, but the dry snow is problematic, according to Lyon County Engineer Chip Woods.

In addition, the road treatment materials used locally are largely ineffective at temperatures below 20 degrees unless there is some sunshine, and that may be in short supply until late this week.

Travel is also not up to full speed on area highways for the late night and early morning hours. Check KanDrive.org for details.
