Still forecasting 8 to 14 inches for Wichita, although an isolated inch or two in spots around the metro area wouldn't surprise me. Note the heavy snow in central Missouri.

The heaviest part of the storm is still to come as the upper atmospheric low is in western Arizona. Heaviest snow intensities will be tomorrow in many areas.

UPDATE 1:37PM. Northeast Wichita 3.5 inches. Anthony, 5 inches. Here are amounts from southwest and west central Kansas.

And, from Jared Cerullo via Facebook, five outbound and five inbound flights have been cancelled at Mid-Continent Airport. Waivers in effect.
