Area residents were bracing Wednesday for a second round of winter storms.

Area residents were bracing Wednesday for a second round of winter storms.

Following an ice storm a day earlier, a winter weather advisory was scheduled to go into effect Wednesday evening for Leavenworth County.

A National Weather Service forecast was predicting snow followed by freezing rain, possibly mixed with snow, during the nighttime hours in Leavenworth.

And freezing drizzle is likely for Thursday, according to the NWS forecast.

Leavenworth Public Works Director Mike McDonald said city streets already had been treated because of Tuesday's storm. But he said streets were being pretreated again Wednesday.

He said road crews would continue to work 12-hour shifts in order to respond to the second winter storm.

Deputies from the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office responded to four crashes Tuesday morning that were blamed on the first winter storm. In three of the accidents, vehicles overturned. Two of the rollovers occurred at the same location, U.S. 73-Kansas 7 Highway and Edwards Drive in northern Leavenworth County, but not at the same time, according to Undersheriff Jim Sherley.

None of the crashes resulted in injuries.

Classes were canceled across Leavenworth County on Tuesday because of the first storm.

Classes resumed Wednesday at most schools in the county. However, the Lansing public schools remained closed.

In a message sent to parents, Lansing Superintendent Darrel Stufflebeam said equipment breakdowns had prevented district personnel from making school parking lots and sidewalks safe in time for classes on Wednesday.

Stufflebeam acknowledged in the message the possibility that another round of winter weather could result in classes being canceled again. But as of press time, there was no word regarding school closings for anywhere in the county.

Things could warm up by the weekend. The high temperature on Saturday will be near 49 degrees, and there is a chance for a thunderstorm that afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

The high temperature Sunday will be near 50 degrees.
