Blowing snow and dropping temperatures are creating travel and hypothermia concerns across a large swath of Kansas.
The National Weather Service says snowfall ended Sunday morning, with the heaviest accumulations of 3 to 4 inches recorded in an area that included Manhattan, Topeka and the Kansas City area. Elsewhere accumulations ranged from 2 to 3 inches in southeastern Kansas to 1 to 3 inches in far northeast and south-central sections of the state.
Meteorologist Audra Hennecke says strong northerly winds are leading to widespread areas of blowing and drifting snow.
Wind chill advisories and warnings will be in effect from Sunday night through noon Monday for all but extreme southwest Kansas. Hennecke says northeast sections of the state are expected to see wind chills of minus 25 to 30 degrees.
