Wyandotte County is snowed in, again, after a springtime snowstorm dumped about 5 more inches of snow on the area overnight.
The Board of Public Utilities' outage map was reporting about 335 customers wtihout power near I-435 and I-70 in Kansas City, Kan., as of 7:45 a.m. Sunday.
There could be more snow and areas where there are blowing snow by 10 a.m. Sunday, March 24, according to the National Weather Service. A total daytime snow accumulation could be 1 to 3 inches, the weather service said.
Winds are from 17 to 21 mph with gusts of 29 mph. The temperature was 30 degrees at 7 a.m., and was expected to reach a high of 32 degrees later Sunday.
The wet and heavy snow means that travel is dangerous, the weather service said.
The winter storm warning is in effect until 4 p.m. this afternoon, the weather service stated.
Roads are slick and hazardous, the weather service stated. Residents are advised to stay home, according to the Kansas Department of Transportation. All roads in northeast Kansas are considered partly to completely snowpacked with ice in some places, KDOT stated.
KDOT also reported that both directions of I-70 were reopened in western Kansas at 6 a.m. Sunday. Part of I-70 was closed temporarily because of the weather and because of an accident along the I-70 corridor near Colorado.
K-27 and U.S. 36 are now reopened in Kansas.
