KANSAS CITY, Mo. — 6 a.m. | Winter weather is expected to make travel hazardous in the Kansas City area. High wind and snow will combine to reduce visibility and make roads slick. Snow is expected to accumulate somewhere between a dusting to 3 inches, with some higher drifts in spots due to the wind.
Snow began falling in downtown Kansas City just before 6 a.m.
The snow is expected to last into the evening commute, with the area under a winter weather advisory until 6 p.m.
Several jurisdictions pretreated roads overnight to prepare for the morning commute.
Some schools closed due to the expected conditions. Many of those chose to continue with virtual learning.
