0.01″ Of Freezing Rain Creates Travel Problems This Morning

Good morning bloggers,

It wasn’t much precipitation, only 0.01″, and yet it has caused some big travel issues early this morning. The freezing drizzle is ending, but the temperatures are falling.  Here is the forecast from KSHB.com:

There is another little system coming our way tonight into Wednesday.  Look at this statistic that Sunny The Weather Dog is showing us:


This is just almost too hard to believe.  It has precipitated at least a trace of rain or snow 38 out of the 58 days so far in 2019!  The next significant amount of precipitation is likely on Sunday.  There will be some smaller chances between now and Sunday, and then KC is a target for a few inches of snow this weekend.


This map above is from the European Model.  Here are the snow outputs from some of the models for Sunday:




The European Model has now had four model runs in a row with at least 3 to 4 inches of snow in Kansas City this weekend.  It has been the most consistent and has had the highest amounts.  The snow ratios will be in the 15 to 1 range. So, if there is only 0.20″ liquid, it would likely lead to 3″ of snow.  Why are the ratios likely to be in the 15 to 1 range?  Because the strongest blast of Arctic air is likely later this weekend. Take a look at these forecast temperatures:


This European Model forecast shows way below zero temperatures.  This may be a bit strong, and at the same time if there is a snowpack in place, these temperatures are possible.
