Active weather Thursday includes ice, snow and plenty of rain

A winter weather advisory has been issued through noon Thursday, Feb. 22, for Wyandotte County, according to the National Weather Service.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect across the parts of central in through Thursday morning. A light glaze of ice and up to a half-inch of snow are likely overnight north of I-70. Wind: NE/E 5-15. High: 36. "We're looking at an additional 1-3" of rain area-wide. This freezing drizzle chance will take us into Friday morning, then temperatures should slowly climb above freezing to either side of 40 by the afternoon with plenty of clouds.

Meteorologist Mark Larson says there's another round of wintry weather on the way to Kansas tonight and into Thursday but it should not create as many problems as Tuesday's storm. Highs hover freezing mark with that light icing arrive late this afternoon and evening.

However, they are more likely to see more freezing rain. The snow may mix with sleet or freezing rain at times. On top of the ice, locations across Mid-Michigan will encounter scattered rain showers and possibly a few snow showers mixed in. We'll have to continue monitoring the late afternoon hours as colder air starts to move back into the area and temperatures will have an impact on what precipitation type falls.
