The area from Great Bend south to Oklahoma is what meteorologists call the "dry slot." It will spread east and stop the rain around Wichita and northern Oklahoma. 

Nebraska and Kansas road conditions are below. Purple indicates the road is snow covered.

There will be blowing and drifting snow throughout these areas with blizzard conditions in the High Plains.
