Wichita More snow than first anticipated is falling across a wide swath of Kansas, with up to 11 inches now expected in parts of central Kansas.
National Weather Service meteorologist Robb Lawson said Tuesday that if there is any silver lining to the storm, it is that the state did not have any ice before the snow started.
Winds of 10 to 20 miles per hour are calmer now than during last week's storms. That means drifting snow should not be as big a problem.
Emporia State University, Fort Hays State University and Wichita State University all closed early because of inclement weather.
School districts across northwest Kansas called of classes.
The Kansas Department of Transportation issued a winter travel advisory as roads across the state were snow packed.
