A massive snow storm is bearing down on Kansas and a winter storm warning remains in effect until midnight for all of northeast and east-central Kansas.  John Woynick is a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Topeka.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is warning people to stay off the roads today (THUR).  Lt. Keith Hudson says major highways are snowpacked and dangerous.

The Kansas Turnpike Authority is also encouraging motorists to stay off the turnpike.  Officials say the entire route of the toll road -- from the Oklahoma border to Kansas City -- is snow-packed and visibility has been reduced to zero in some areas because of blowing snow.
