The scene of several multi-vehicle crashes just a week ago- today's icy and snowy conditions are making the Turnpike a skating rink again.
Within the past 15 minutes- wrecks have been reported on both east and westbound I-70/Kansas Turnpike in Leavenworth county KS..
These crashes have NOT involved many vehicles yet- according to scanner reports- nor are injuries reported to be critical- although one crash at "Mile 214" on the Turnpike has reportedly resulted in "2 head injuries."
Temperatures remain at or just below freezing Metro-wide- and I don't expect any improvement- in fact- temperatures will begin to slowly fall when the storm center to our south moves east and turns our winds around to the north and northwest.
Weather radar continues to show the heavier precipitation moving OUT of Metro Kansas City- as shown by the NWS-Pleasant Hill radar image.
More updates here as conditions warrant....
