The 8th Snow Event of the Winter

Good Saturday bloggers,

We are likely going to have our 8th main snow of the season and we officially stand at 5.4″ of snow for the winter. So, right now we are averaging 0.8″ of snow per event and this next event will have a tough time raising the average.

Here is the weather time line for this next event. If you are out and about 6 PM to 9 PM there will be developing slick spots and after 9 PM is when the roads will get more slick.


Now, let’s go through this next small snow event.

SATURDAY 6 PM TO 9 PM: We will see areas of light snow increase with some freezing drizzle to the southeast. The roads will be in decent shape with some slick spots developing.


SATURDAY 9 PM TO MIDNIGHT: The snow will be most likely falling north of I-70 with scattered light snow to the south. Once again, this is not a strong or organized storm system.


SUNDAY MIDNIGHT TO 3 AM: This is the best chance of snow for all of KC, but just like last time we are waiting for a trailing band of snow. The only difference, is we have a better chance of scattered light snow before the band. It won’t take much to get slick with temperatures between 10° and 15°.


SUNDAY 3 AM TO 7 AM: The snow will end and move off to the southeast. Yes, this is one notch away from a non-snow event.


SUNDAY: Any snow areas will be over by 9-10 AM and the sun will return during the afternoon as highs reach the 20s.



Based on the new data we are at a dusting to 1″ of snow for most locations.  1″ to 2″ of snow is possible north of highway 36. This data has KCI meeting the seasons snowfall per event average of 0.8″. It may end up less than this.


This is yet again a snow lovers nightmare, but if it is not going to snow, it might as well be warmer. This week we are in for a huge warm up as highs by Valentine’s day should climb to 55°-60°.

Have a great weekend.
