The frosty weather is expected to affect all of western Kansas, parts of eastern Colorado and the Oklahoma panhandle, according to Kruse.
For north-central Kansas, approximately 7 inches is predicted through today.
In south-central Kansas, 6 to 9 inches are expected, and 3 to 6 inches are predicted in southeast Kansas through Tuesday.
Northeast Kansas is predicted to receive 4 to 9 inches through Wednesday morning.
Kruse said the snow is expected to stop Wednesday morning, but the temperature will continue to plummet to a low of 4 degrees below zero with a chilling high of 8 degrees on Wednesday.
Kruse also stated that a "significant amount" of snowfall is expected for Saturday, with a chance of another 3 to 6 inches.
"I wouldn't suggest a lot of driving during this period, but for those who have travel plans, check your local listings for the potential threat of snow," Kruse said.
The onset of spring-like temperatures is difficult to predict, Kruse said, noting March can either roar like a lion or be as gentle as a lamb.
"In March, we can get the worst snow storms, blizzards and stuff, but then again, it could be nice," Kruse said.
Healy also received about an inch of snow.
For people traveling this weekend, the forecast looks sunny and free of snow, Kruse said.
There will be a chance of flurries again Monday, but Kruse said the chances are slim.
