Leavenworth residents were bracing for another winter storm Tuesday as more snowfall was expected in the area.

A winter weather advisory went into effect for Leavenworth County at 4 p.m. The advisory was scheduled to continue until 9 a.m. today, according to the National Weather Service.

This is the 10th winter weather advisory to be issued this winter for Leavenworth County, according to Kim Buchanan, deputy director of Leavenworth County Emergency Management.

A total of 25 weather advisories and warnings have been issued for the county this winter season including one blizzard warning, one wind chill advisory and two ice storm warnings.

Mike McDonald, director of the Leavenworth Public Works Department, said city crews were pretreating roads Tuesday afternoon in anticipation of the storm.

The National Weather Service was predicting three to five inches of snow in the city of Leavenworth.

There also was a chance for ice from freezing rain.

As of press time Tuesday afternoon, no announcements had been made about local school cancellations for today. But Lansing Superintendent Darrel Stufflebeam said the weather forecast looked bleak.

Buchanan said Leavenworth County Emergency Management officials also are monitoring the weather forecast for this weekend. She said there is a chance rain could transition into snow this weekend to provide an additional one to two inches of snow.
