TOPEKA, Kan. — The first snowstorm of the season is on its way to northeast Kansas. The National Weather Service in Topeka has issued a winter weather advisory for northeast Kansas including Douglas, Shawnee, Wabaunsee, Jefferson, Franklin, Osage, Geary and Riley Counties. Snow accumulations of 2-4 inches are expected with locally higher amounts possible. Meteorologist Jennifer Bowen of the National Weather Service in Topeka says snow is likely to start falling early Saturday morning. "We'll have some light to moderate snow developing as early as 4 a.m. in the Emporia and Abilene area and then quickly spreading eastward across much of northeast Kansas later Saturday morning and into the afternoon hours." Bowen says. The Weather Service warns that road conditions could become hazrdous during the morning hours with periods of limited visibility. Bowen says, after the snowstorm passes late tomorrow, it will still be very cold for at least a few more days. "Temperatures will be in the 20s for highs Sunday, Monday and possibly even Tuesday." Bowen says. "But it looks like it will finally start to warm up into the low 40s by Wednesday."
