The National Weather service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory involving freezing drizzle for the overnight hours in Eudora. The advisory is from 9:00 PM Friday to 6:00 AM Saturday.

As of posting time, the snow predicted for the area on Friday evening has been removed from the forecast.  Forecasters are now saying areas to the east in Missouri will receive more of the snow accumulations. Locally, Eudora is expected to receive 1/10th of an inch in ice and snow.

This is the second round of winter weather today. Around 7:00 AM this morning, freezing rain fell in the area causing multiple slide offs and cars into ditches particularly along K-10. Other roads leading to nearby communities were treacherous as well. Many drivers reported city streets were extremely icy for a period of approximately two hours until the temperature rose and melted the ice.
