Good morning bloggers,
Snow began falling Saturday afternoon and evening, and then when the “real” radar echoes formed the precipitation types changed. The sleet should be no surprise as we have been discussing this possibility for days. The shocking thing is that it was still sleeting heavily in areas with temperatures near 5°. The sleet/snow line set up right over Kansas City near I-70, so it will be interesting to see snowfall totals north of this line. Here is the 3 AM observation at KCI Airport, the beginning of what will likely be the coldest March day ever recorded in Kansas City’s weather history:
Here is the graphic I showed a few days ago:
Let’s see where we end up by the end of the day. The main storm is still approaching and new areas of precipitation should grow with Kansas City near the northern edge.
New areas of precipitation are growing southwest of Kansas City……..I will finish this blog soon….
