Kansas City is getting a bit of a break from frigid weather, if you consider temperatures in the 30s to be a break. But wintry precipitation is likely to hit this weekend.
Temperatures Friday will remain in the 30s, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo.
Beginning Friday evening, a large weather system is expected to move across the Plains, bringing wintry precipitation to the Kansas City area through Saturday night.
A mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow is possible late Friday night, resulting in slick roads early Saturday.
Precipitation is likely through Saturday, with snow accumulations of up to 4 inches in the northernmost part of the region and 1 to 3 inches possible in most of the Kansas City area.
Subfreezing temperatures are likely for the rest of the weekend and much of next week.
