A potent storm system moved over the area causing a brief period of mixed precipitation across the Central Plains. Precipitation began as rain before transitioning to freezing rain, sleet and snow as colder air rapidly moved in from the north. The wintry precipitation resulted in difficult travel with over 150 accidents reported across central and south central Kansas. This storm system also brought strong winds in addition to the wintry mix of precipitation. North winds gusted over 45 mph across portions of central and south central Kansas.
