Good afternoon bloggers,
Our snow event continues and conditions are changing a bit. First, a cold front is now moving south across the city and temperatures have fallen to the upper 20s north of the river and are still around 32 south. This front will move south the next several hours and temps will be falling to the low 20s by midnight. So, untreated surfaces will become slick after 3-5 PM. Second, the snow is increasing, especially north, as the main system tracks through central Kansas to northern Missouri.
Here is a view from the Nicklaus Golf Club at 2 PM, the flakes are bigger:
Here is an image from Live ESP at 2 PM as well. Notice, the snow increasing west and northwest of KC. This area will continue to move east-northeast and weaken after 6 PM. 1/2″ to 1″ of new snow is likely between now and when the last of the snow falls by 2-3 PM. Areas to the north and west may see 1-2″.
Enjoy the snow and Happy New Year!
