WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A major winter snowstorm is bringing heavy snow across much of Kansas.

Kansas government ground to a halt Tuesday as lawmakers postponed legislative work. Schools throughout the state cancelled classes.

National Weather Service meteorologist Andy Kleinsasser says the onset was a little bit later than anticipated in Wichita with about an inch on the ground for the morning commute. Drier air evaporated much of the snow before it hit the ground. Atmospheric conditions also focused the heaviest snowfalls from Hutchinson to Topeka in northeast Kansas, with 3 to 4 inches on the ground by early morning.

Meteorologists anticipate this will be the biggest storm so far this winter. The heaviest snow is expected to fall throughout the morning until early afternoon before tapering off and ending by evening.
