The storm is expected to initiate its wintry assault on western Kansas tonight, with snowfall intensifying by daybreak on Saturday as it advances toward central Kansas. 

The central and eastern parts of the state will experience continuous snowfall throughout the day, with western Kansas seeing a gradual cessation of activity during the evening.

Sanders notes that there is a possibility of rain mixing with snow in areas southeast of the Kansas Turnpike, a factor that may mitigate snow accumulation in southeast Kansas.
