Counties in Pink and Purple represent areas of SIGNIFICANT ICING.

  
FREEZING RAIN HAS CONTINUED SINCE OUR LAST UPDATE WITH ICING CAUSING SIGNIFICANT TREE FAMAGE AND POWER INTERUPTIONS. AS I WRITE THIS UPDATE I HEARD A TRANSFORMER POP. 

Radar:

 
 Here is the KPL OUTAGE MAP:
  
Close to 1500 are without power in the Hutchinson area and that continues to increase as the precip continues..

The WARNINGS last through Monday morning as we expect an additional .25″ of icing overnight Sunday into Monday- then we will be done with the precip.

I have a feeling those without power might be off for several hours/days due to the shear number of outages we are seeing areawide. 

I’m not sure if any Redcross Shelters have been set-up but we will keep you posted…

Stay safe Weather Watchers- if you are elderly or disabled and need help please let us know-
