KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Despite a winter weather advisory, winter precipitation largely missed the Kansas City metro overnight.

Downtown and south of Interstate 70 saw a dusting to a little under 2 inches.

However, temperatures remained bitter cold for all, with an average high expected to be around 14 degrees.

Wind chills will be near or below zero for most of the day.

A few smaller schools chose to cancel classes for Thursday, and Excelsior Springs chose to have a virtual day.

Since roads were pretreated in most areas starting Wednesday evening, the light dusting of snow did not appear to be a problem for early commuters.
