KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After a brief warm-up, Kansas City is about to be hit with another round of winter weather.

The National Weather Service placed the Kansas City metro under a winter weather advisory until 9 p.m. Friday. The weather service said that snowfall rates could reach 1 inch per hour at times.

Snow will continue falling through the afternoon, with the heaviest snow expected before 3 p.m., according to the 41 Action News weather team. It will begin to taper off from west to east between 5 and 7 p.m.

Roads will become slick and snow-covered, and conditions will deteriorate through the afternoon.

In Kansas City, 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible on Friday. Accumulations will be highest along the Interstate 70 corridor and in Kansas City, with lesser amounts to the northeast.

Another storm system is forecast to move in late Saturday afternoon, bringing another 1 to 2 inches of snow to the area.
