All of Douglas County remains in an ice storm warning until 3 p.m., according to the latest update from the Topeka office of the National Weather Service.

The ice could cause power outages, tree damage and make travel risky and almost impossible, including during the Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning commutes.

Chief Meteorologist Ross Janssen says that a Weather Alert Day is in place for Tuesday morning for the chance of freezing rain over central and eastern Kansas.

Wednesday will be quiet and sunny as temperatures try to warm to near freezing.

Tonight: Rain will remain scattered through the evening hours.
