Wichita's most sizable snowstorm in nearly three years is in the forecast for Tuesday & Wednesday, with about four inches of snow predicted.

Wichita has five dozen trucks with plows ready to activate once about an inch-and-a-half of snow is on the ground; those 60 trucks will service the main surface roads of Wichita's primary streets.

For every winter-weather event, road crews apply about one million pounds of salt/sand mix to Wichita's primary roadways.
