Early Winter Storm Blows In And Away

Kansas City, Mo. –
Some parts of northwest Kansas got up to 10 inches of snow Thursday night as a storm rolled into the state from Colorado. But the National Weather Service says the snow will be gone by the end of the weekend as temperatures rise into the 50s and 60s.

Rawlins County saw the biggest accumulation with 10 inches.

A meteorologist says areas south of Interstate 70 received little if any snow from the system.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says Interstate 70, which was closed from Colby to the Colorado state line because of the storm, reopened late Friday morning. It's expected gusty winds will still whip the snow into the early weekend hours making driving visibility difficult in places.
