Minor Icing Early Today, Then Just Wet

Good Sunday bloggers,

From one of our bloggers:

“How is it that precipitation is already starting well east of here? Furthermore, temperatures haven’t been above freezing for that long, so how can the ground warm above freezing quickly enough to not freeze any liquid that falls on surfaces that were subjected to the freezing cold for 15 days? . . . → Read More: Minor Icing Early Today, Then Just Wet

No Snow! Really?!?!?!

Good Saturday bloggers,

Today will make the 15th straight day below freezing. This is not that unusual considering it occurred during the end of December and early January. What is odd is that we have had just 2.2″ of snow (0.9″, 0.8″ and 0.1″ in the two snows,on the Plaza where we measure for the snowflake contest)  during this cold stretch . . . → Read More: No Snow!

Happy New Year bloggers!

My goodness if it is going to be this cold, then it might as well snow. Unfortunately, this is not the case as we are staying in this ridiculously dry weather pattern. Dodge City, KS has received 0.01” since the new LRC started.  It will stay dry for at least another 5-7 days. . . . → Read More: Frigid End to 2017, Frigid Start to 2018

Merry Christmas bloggers,

Snowfall amounts were as predicted, 1/2″ to 1″ with some locations just over 1″.  Trenton, MO received 3.2″ and this is where we expected the heavier snow. Now, did the snowflake contest end? Remember, there needs to be 1″ of snow at 41 Action News as measured by one of our meteorologists.   I was . . . → Read More: White Christmas and Cold Intensification

To Dream or Not to Dream of a “White Christmas?”

Good Saturday bloggers,

Well, here we are on the doorstep of Christmas and it looks like we will not have to dream of a “White Christmas!” A series of disturbances will be tracking out of the Rockies, consolidating to one main disturbance as they move east across our region.

Another Dry Storm System

Good Sunday bloggers,

We are looking at some great weather, considering it is December 10th in Kansas City. We will be having a westerly breeze from the high Plains, so the wind is blowing from higher to lower elevations, or also know as downsloping winds, a warming wind as the air sinks and compresses. Highs today will . . . → Read More: Another Dry Storm System
