Weekend Wintry Change

Good Saturday bloggers,

We had a nice break from the early start to winter, but this weekend winter returns. We are tracking a blast of cold and storm system.

SATURDAY NOON: It will be windy and colder with temperatures dropping through the 30s along with a thickening overcast. Highs will reach the low to mid 40s before temperatures begin dropping. A few patches of light mix will be starting in northern Missouri and northeast Kansas.


SATURDAY NOON TO 3 PM: We will see temperatures continue to slowly drop as snow increases across northern Missouri. KC will be dry, windy and cold.


SATURDAY 3 PM TO 9 PM: The snow will really get going in northern Missouri, becoming heavy a times. Locations to the south, including KC, will see a few areas of light snow/drizzle/sleet as temperatures continue to drop. It will take until 9-10 PM to see any precipitation in KC. The roads will be slick in northern Missouri and likely dry or damp in KC.


SATURDAY NIGHT 9 PM TO MIDNIGHT: The snow will shift south and weaken. KC will have a chance of light snow, mostly north of I-70. The snow will end in northern Missouri where roads will be quite slick. KC may have some slick spots.


SUNDAY MIDNIGHT TO 7 AM: The snow will exit to the east with lows in the 20s. Roads will be slick north with possible slick spots in KC. See below for snowfall forecast. The wind will decrease as well.


SUNDAY: We will see the clearing line slowly progress from north to south with highs in the 30s. Roads will improve through the day. The wind will be light.


SNOWFALL FORECAST: 1″ to 4″ of snow will be likely from Maryville to Trenton. 1/2″ to 1″ will be possible from Atchison, KS to Chillicothe, MO. The KC area will see a dusting to 1/2″, most north of I-70. It won’t take much to create slick spots in KC as the precipitation will occur at night with temperatures in the 20s. So, a dusting or even damp to wet spots could freeze.


Here is a closer look at where the snow will be heaviest.


Thanksgiving week is looking much warmer and drier. Thanksgiving day may see highs close to 60°! A rain system is possible Friday into next weekend.

Have a great weekend.
