GOODLAND, Kan. (AP) Residents of far northwest Kansas are finding themselves coping with the first measureable snow of the season.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service in Goodland issued a winter weather advisory Thursday evening for Cheyenne and Sherman counties, in effect from midnight to 9 a.m. Friday (Mountain Daylight Time).

Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches were expected overnight, with another inch possible before the snow ends at mid-morning Friday.

But anything remaining on the ground is likely to melt Saturday amid sunny conditions and temperatures of 60 or a bit higher.

The advisory area includes the cities of Goodland and St. Francis.
