HARPER, Kan. (AP) - Kansas weather is often unpredictable but Sunday was a particularly odd day in the state.

The National Weather Service issued tornado warnings Sunday evening in Harper, Kingman and Reno counties in south-central Kansas. A tornado briefly touched down about five miles northeast of Harper but no injuries or serious damage was reported.

Later Sunday evening, snow began falling in Cheyenne County in far northwest Kansas.

Much of the rest of the state experienced rain and misty conditions.

Meteorologist Chris Jakub told The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/12TOqMc ) the unusual weather occurred when warm and moist conditions met a strong upper-level system. He said the mix of weather was unusual for mid-December in Kansas.
