Looks like we’re in for a slippery New Year’s Eve, everyone.
The Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Kansas City area starting at 6 a.m. Monday and running through 6 a.m. Tuesday. Snow is expected to begin early and continue through early Monday afternoon. Forecasters expect a break Monday afternoon before a new wave of snowfall develops Monday night.
Total accumulations could be as high as five inches.
The near-freezing temperatures mean much of the snow could begin to melt Monday afternoon only to refreeze as slick ice Monday night — when New Year’s Eve revelers are hitting the roads.
Please drive safe out there.
