Snow to make roadways hazardous

February 27, 2003


Be careful when you head home from work -- about an inch of snow is expected to make driving hazardous.

The National Weather Service in Topeka has issued a Winter Weather Advisory through the rest of the day for much of Kansas, including Douglas County and areas to the south and west.

Driving conditions are expected to become more hazardous as the day progresses, especially in areas south of Interstate 70.

The weather service advises motorists to use caution, keep plenty of distance between vehicles and slow down.

Matt Sayers, 6News meteorologist, said in his mid-day forecast that Lawrence is expected to get an inch or less during the afternoon, with heavier accumulations down to the south of 2 to 4 inches.

His forecast for the Lawrence area calls for overnight temperatures to drop to 22, with mostly cloudy skies.

"Then tomorrow, we do see another chance for some snow," he said. The high will be 32 with light winds.

"This weekend and starting next week, we finally warm up," he said.

His forecast calls for the highs Saturday and Sunday to be in the upper 30s and the highs Monday and Tuesdays to be in the upper 40s. The lows during the weekend will be in the 20s.
