GOODLAND, Kan. (AP) — A winter storm is forecast to move into sections of western Kansas. The National Weather Service issued a blizzard watch Monday for northwest Kansas, forecasting high winds, rain and up to 6 inches of snow. The weather service office in Goodland said the storm was expected to be more severe to the west in Colorado. But snow combined with wind gusts in six northwest Kansas could reach up to 55 miles per hour early Tuesday, reducing visibility on roadways. The weather service says the snow in western Kansas would likely begin after midnight Monday, with the heaviest snowfall expected about midmorning Tuesday. The blizzard watch in Kansas is forecast to be in effect from late Monday through Tuesday night.
