8:30 PM update:
A band of heavy snow showers embedded in two areas of snow will be moving across the KC metro area during the next three hours. A quick inch of snow, possibly more if you are in the heaviest area, is expected. There is a second band moving southeast into northwest Missouri. We are in the axis, but areas just off to the east may not even see a flurry from this. Here is the 8:30 PM radar:
There is a nice spinning comma head of snow moving in from the northwest with this first heavy band. The pinks to reds show heavy snow. Let me know what you experience. I will be on live at 10 PM on 41 Action News.
Good evening bloggers,
It’s Friday Night In The Big Town! And, three storm systems are going to affect us in the next week. The third one, and strongest one will likely produce freezing rain, rain, thunderstorms, and snow in the KC viewing area. But before we get to that third storm, which is still five nights away, we have snow heading towards us tonight.
The snow is a small scale fast moving system. Snow is likely in Kansas City between around 10 PM and 2 AM with some minor accumulation possible. Here is a graphic I am showing on the earlier weather-casts tonight:
After this system moves by our attention will switch to next week’s storm system. It is still a storm that doesn’t exist at the moment. It is just a stream of energy moving across the Pacific that will dive to near the California coast by early next week. A storm moving by Monday will bring colder air in, which will set us up for some type, if not various types of winter weather next week.
Have a great night. I will go over the details on 41 Action News tonight at 6 and 10 PM.
