Winter Storm Watch issued for Wyandotte County

KANSAS CITY, KAN. ---- The biggest snow storm of the 2013-14 winter is on its way.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Wyandotte County and the Kansas City metro area.

Between 6-8 inches of snow are predicted for Kansas City Tuesday.

According to the NWS, the drive to work on Tuesday will be fine. However, coming home will be most difficult if the forecast holds.

Information about Tuesday's storm from the NWS' Facebook page:
1) If you don't get rid of the ice from your sidewalk and driveway today, get used to it because it will be there for a while.

2) Unlike past storms this winter, this one will be all snow. No wintry mix.

3) Your morning commute likely won't be bad on Tuesday. However, getting back home WILL be dangerous and prove difficult. Plan accordingly.

4) It WILL snow in our forecast area. The past graphics we've sent out for snowfall totals still look good. The forecasters have begun analyzing the newest data that has and will be coming in this morning. We will make minor edits during the day today, but we don't expect any major changes.
