Roads are wet for much of the metro this morning. With temperatures are falling into the 20s, this will create slick spots on roads this morning. Watch out for those elevated and untreated surfaces.

Then, another round of snow is expected tonight into Wednesday, expected to affect more of the metro. The system moves in from the southwest mid- to late-evening and fully engulfs Kansas City by midnight.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory to the west of the metro, where snow fall may be greater.
