A rack of bicycles is covered in snow on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019, at the University of Kansas.

Another round of snow is on its way to Lawrence, and this time winter winds are coming with it.

The National Weather Service in Topeka has issued a winter weather advisory for Douglas County from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday.

On Friday night, NWS meteorologist Shawn Byrne said Lawrence could expect 2 to 3 inches of snow this weekend.

The weather service expects snow to continue overnight as temperatures dip into the teens and winds increase to 20 to 25 miles per hour.

A slight chance of snow Saturday morning should give way to partly sunny and mostly clear conditions the rest of the day, though temperatures are expected to stay below 20 degrees. Wind chill readings will be between 4 below and 9 above Saturday into Sunday morning, even as wind speeds decrease.

Temperatures are expected to warm up slightly Sunday, reaching the lower 30s.
