Ice, snow in forecast
The weather is about to turn more seasonal - in a big way - starting Wednesday.
Mild temperatures in the mid-60s are forecast for today in Lansing, but forecasters say temperatures will plummet and rain, ice and snow likely will be on the way on Wednesday.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for much of the region, including Lansing, in effect from Wednesday afternoon through late Wednesday night.
Forecasters say a strong cold front should move through the Kansas City area on Wednesday morning, causing temperatures to drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s by Wednesday afternoon. Rain may continue behind the front and lead to significant ice accumulations into the evening hours.
A winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
