Rain and a rain/snow mix will overspread the forecast area during the morning hours today. Most of southern Kansas (GREEN shaded area) will see widespread rain showers... but areas northwest of a Great Bend to Salina line (LIGHT BLUE shaded area) may see a mixture of rain and snow.

Rain will gradually change over to snow this evening and tonight from north to south, persisting through Saturday morning. Wet and slushy accumulations will range from 3 to 5 inches, with locally higher amounts... across generally the northern half of Kansas, with around one inch or less across far southern Kansas.
