Amounts of snow may range from 1 to 3 inches, with 2 to 3 inches expected across the Kansas City area, the weather service said. Isolated pockets may receive 4 inches of snow.

Most of the snow is expected to fall between midnight and 6 a.m. in a fast-moving storm, according to the weather service.

As the snow winds down, light freezling drizzle may occur during the day Thursday, the weather service said.

The winter weather advisory for light snow and freezing drizzle will be in effect from 6 p.m. tonight to 9 a.m. Thursday.

Because light snow will likely accumulate on roadways, causing them to be slick, and freezing drizzle will cause a glazing of ice, drivers are advised to be very careful in their early morning commutes on Thursday, the weather service said.
