An approaching winter storm is threatening to dump 3 to 5 inches of snow across the region this weekend, with the immediate Kansas City metro area seeing between 2 to 3 inches of accumulating snow, according to the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo.

In parts of the 77 corridor and Southside, ice accumulation on top of some accumulations of snow will be possible. A heavy, wet snow is expected with the storm as temperatures hover near the freezing mark.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS... Travel may be hard due to snow covered and slippery roads. A period of light snow likely breaks out statewide early Saturday before a warmer wedge of air moves northward.

Weather service officials say the snow is expected to start late Friday, developing from a winter storm system in the southwestern U.S. Snow is to continue into Saturday, sometimes mixed with rain. Highs will be in the upper 30s-low 40s. If possible it would be a good idea to stay as close to KC as possible tonight so you have less of a drive on Saturday. The more snow pack that remains, the colder it will stay. Weather during the game will be in the 30s and wind chills in the 20s with light snow or flurries at least for the beginning of the game although it won't be heavy.
