Snowfall tapering off, bitter cold continues

FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) -

Light to moderate sleet and snow will stay in the forecast through Sunday morning into the afternoon hours.

The National Weather Service downgraded the winter storm warning for the Kansas City metro and replaced it with a winter weather advisory.

"The difference of a few degrees 5,000 to 7,000 feet up in the atmosphere can be the difference between snow and sleet. Those temperatures were in fact the reason our forecast did not pan out how we planned," KCTV5 meteorologist Hallie Shulman said.

Locations north of Interstate 70 saw more snow than sleet and in turn had higher snow totals. Those south of I-70 had more sleet than snow and had lower snow totals.

As of 8:30 a.m., Chillicothe was reporting 4 inches of snow. Bethany has 3 inches on the ground, and Gladstone had 2 1/2 inches.

However, the metro is not completely done with the sleet and snow yet, Shulman said.

"We will likely have a break in activity through much of the mid-morning hours. We're watching another wave of snow move northeast from southwest Kansas early this morning," she said.

This will likely stay south of I-70 as it moves northeast towards the Kansas City area.

The metro will be on the northern fringe of the system as it moves through the area about noon. An additional inch or two of snow will be possible.

Aside from sleet and snow, the metro is also dealing with record-setting temperatures.

Temperatures will only climb to about 5 degrees Sunday with wind chills near 10 to 15 degrees below zero.  It will go down in the record books as the coldest high temperature ever recorded in the month of March.

"Skies will clear this evening with a very cold night in store," Shulman said.

Temperatures will fall to about 5 degrees below zero by Monday morning. When winds are factored in, temperatures will be feeling closer to 10 to 20 degrees below zero.

"Warmer weather arrives by the mid to end of the work week," Shulman said.
