KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A winter weather advisory remains in effect until noon Wednesday. While roads are slick, snow just began falling around the metro around 6 a.m. Roads are slick, but mainly wet.

In the Northland, as many as 8 cars were in a ditch near Staley High School at Woodland Avenue and NE Shoal Creek Parkway.

The most intense snow is supposed to happen during the commute and gradually taper off by noon.

Snow and blowing snow will cause problems driving, so plan on extra time to get where you need to be.

Snow accumulations will range anywhere from one to two inches near Interstate 70 — and upwards of three to four inches near U.S. Highway 36, the National Weather Service reported.

Falling temps will cause water from Tuesday’s rain to freeze or slush, especially on untreated roads.
