Winter Forecast In Two Days

Good morning bloggers,

The Snowflake Contest ended at 10:33 AM on the Plaza.  Our weather team measured the one inch, and than another half inch fell in the next hour as a band of snow was nearly stationary right over Kansas City.  This puts the Plaza up to 1.8″ this season already, while a few spots south of KC are over 5″ for the season thus far.  KCI Airport had 0.5″, and the total now for the season is 2.0″ as our official number.  What a great beginning to the season as it has already snowed on five different days, and four of them came in the previous five days (Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday). Wow!  Not a bad start. Our winter forecast will be airing on 41 Action News Thursday night at 10 PM.

There is actually a chance of another small snowfall with this developing pattern. Right now, a very positively tilted storm is forming south of KC, and on the upper right map you can see it organize into a strong upper level storm that may bring some snow to eastern Missouri early Thursday.  There are many other developments in this pattern that we are monitoring closely as well and on Saturday evening a system may be able to produce this below:

A quick blog today.  Yesterday about wiped me out. I had no sleep. I was up monitoring for the very disturbance that brought us our snowfall yesterday.  I had anticipated that it would happen, and I was up looking for the feature that I thought could bring us yesterdays snow. It wasn’t until around 4 AM when I finally saw the system spin out of southern KS and it produced. I was pleased with the results, and it was a fun weather day.

It will be sunny today. Have a great Tuesday and we will look ahead tonight on 41 Action News.
