Weather service declares winter weather advisory
The National Weather Service reports that a winter weather advisory will remain in effect for Leavenworth and neighboring counties until 6 p.m. today.
The service said one to two inches of snow is expected south of Tonganoxie and up to one inch north of the city. Twenty to 30 mph winds are expected and are likely to create blowing snow.
The service said the advisory means the precipitation could cause travel difficulties so it asks that drivers be prepared for slippery road and lowered visibility.
