There could be a few areas south of the city that could be a little higher than an inch.

Here's the afternoon forecast from the National Weather Service. Strong winds may make travel hard and unsafe. Big Sandy schools will be closing at 12:15 p.m. Calhan RJ1 will close at 1 p.m., as will Frontier Charter Academy.

The K-State Parachute Club 3K Day has also been cancelled for Saturday because of weather conditions.
