WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A storm dropped between 1 and 3 inches of snow across central and eastern Kansas, causing cars to slide off the roads in the season’s first measurable snowfall for many areas.
Dozens of accidents were reported by 7 a.m. Monday in the Wichita area, after 2 inches fell overnight. The National Weather Service says 3 inches were reported in parts of Sumner, Butler and Cowley counties.
Kansas Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kimberly Qualls said highways in northeast Kansas were completely snowpacked, except where they were treated in the Topeka and Kansas City regions.
The weather service said flurries were likely to end by noon in much of the state, followed by a cold, windy day with highs in the mid-30s and winds sometimes reaching 30 mph.
