After nearly setting a record high Monday, Manhattan is now bracing for a taste of winter weather as midweek approaches.

The National Weather Service office in Topeka has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Riley, Pottawatomie and Geary counties from 9 p.m. this evening through noon Thursday. The forecast is calling for approximately 3 to 5 inches of snow for the Manhattan area, with greater amounts likely further to the south and east.

A Winter Storm Warning is posted for the same time frame from southwest Kansas to the Kansas City metro, including Topeka and Lawrence.

Snow is expected to begin late tonight, with the peak snowfall expected by Wednesday morning into Wednesday afternoon.
