A winter storm with freezing rain and snow is expected to hit Kansas.

The National Weather Service on Sunday issued winter storm warnings for several sections of the state, including eastern and south-central Kansas. The weather service said the warnings are in effect through Monday night.

The weather service says the storm is expected to move from the south to north late Sunday night and is forecast to include a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow. Up to 6 inches of snow is expected from Council Grove to Seneca, with about a quarter inch of ice possible from Emporia to Hiawatha.

High winds could also affect visibility, making travel hazardous.

Additional snow was also expected in central and north-central Kansas, with accumulations from 2 inches to 5 inches.
