WICHITA, Kansas -- A second winter storm is headed for Kansas, just when you thought mother nature was going to give us a break.
"We could be looking at an event equally large to the second largest event in the recorded history of the record keeping here in Wichita," said Joe Pajor, Public Works & Utilities, City of Wichita.
The City of Wichita could see blizzard like conditions with wind gust of up to 60 mph.
Wind is a game changer this second time around that has many city crews worried.
"We've used a little more than half of our available salt and sand inventory fighting the storm last week," said Pajor. "So we want to be careful going forward."
Wichita received up to a foot of snow the first time around.
The second round of snow fall could bring anywhere between 8 to 14 inches of snow.
With some parts of our KSN's viewing area seeing a possibility of up to 26 inches of snow.
"The unprecedented nature of this much snow in this short of period of time will create conditions," said Pajor. "Especially on residential streets, but across the entire city that are basically unprecedented for the traveling public."
Wichita Police say roadway conditions will most likely worsen as the night progress, creating slick and icy spots for drivers.
"We are asking citizens to stay off the roadways if at all possible," said Lt. Doug Nolte. "If it is necessary to drive on the roadways, certainly we want you to be prepared to travel by taking extra time and not rushing."
The Wichita Police Department would also like to remind drivers to make sure your car windows are defrosted and clear of any snow before you hit the road.
Keep in mind it's against the law if you don't and you could also be fined.
