While this isn't going to be a major storm system, the timing of it could make for tricky traveling Saturday morning. Wind chills remain in the single digits this morning and will ease only a touch through the afternoon.

Highs Friday are expected to be in the mid to upper 30s before falling below freezing. AccuWeather.com predicts 6 to 12 inches of snow in those areas. A period of light snow likely breaks out statewide early Saturday before a warmer wedge of air moves northward. In general, more snow is expected along and north of 460. Right now, it looks like a trace to 1 inch of snow on the ground for the early morning commute, with around 2 to 4 inches of total accumulation throughout the day. "Considering the moisture content available, temperatures and track, up to 4" will be possible in spots, if not more in some isolated spots.

Forecasters say a winter storm system moving in from the southwestern US could potentially drop 4 to 7 inches of snow in the watch area, with locally higher amounts possible.

The rain is expected to change over to snow Friday evening, with the greatest potential for accumulating snow in the Kansas City area Friday night through Saturday morning, according to the weather service. Light on-and-off snow will continue into Monday afternoon.
