A Cold & Drier Snow Has Started

Good morning bloggers,

Snow

We are getting reports of the first snowflakes already, as of 6:45 AM.  I had Sunny The Weather Dog help us with this forecast.  We are confident that Kansas City will have 2 to 3 inches of snow today, and then the chance of more goes down a bit.  If you are 50 miles northeast of KC, these chances go way down, in fact there will be a cut off from no snow to snow, a rather sharp cut off. Look at the latest HRRR prediction from the 5 AM model run:

The next chance on Saturday night is interesting as a surface cyclone spins by:

And, the third system on Tuesday into Wednesday we will analyze over the weekend and on 41 Action News today and tonight.

Kansas City Weather Timeline:

  • Today:  A 100% chance of snow with accumulations of 2 to 5 inches likely.  Roads will become slick and hazardous by the lunch hour. High:  16°
  • Tonight:  Snow tapers off to flurries.  Low:  11°
  • Saturday:  Thin clouds will thicken during the day with a 100% chance of snow by Saturday night.  High:  24°
  • Sunday:  A band of snow moves by and ends.  Additional accumulations from Saturday night into Sunday morning of around 1 to 2 inches possible.  High:  29°

Have a great day and provide yourself a lot of extra time. Good luck in the snow forecasting game, and join in the conversation at Weather2020.com.
