The National Weather Service in Dodge City is calling for the latest round of wintry weather to stay well south of the Hays area.

Up to 2 inches of additional snowfall will sweep across parts of southern Kansas, but no precipitation is expected in Ellis County.

The snowpack will remain, however, as temperatures are expected to remain below freezing Tuesday. A high of 34 is predicted Thursday, with 42 the expected high Friday.

By Sunday, a dramatic cooldown is expected, with highs in the mid- to upper-teens Sunday through Tuesday.

There is a slight chance of snow Saturday and Sunday nights, the NWS said.
