Good evening bloggers,
Who thinks this forecast is an easy one? This has been a difficult day dealing with so many breaking news developments with yesterday’s explosion, today’s car chase, and this developing winter storm. The storm looks impressive right now on Satellite. I will be analyzing the new data before the 10 PM newscast on 41 Action News, so look for an update then. There have been so many varying solutions. I am convinced there will be spots that get over a foot of snow from this storm system. Snowfall forecasts for Kansas City have varied from 4″ on the low end to as much as 18 inches on the high end.
This map above shows the sleet developing tomorrow morning. How far north will the sleet reach? This is important, because if the precipitation changes over to sleet the snow/sleet totals will be lower. The most likely area to see all snow is north of I-70. Look at how far north the sleet gets on one of our models:
Here is our snowfall forecast that I just showed on 41 Action News.
Have a great evening. We will update the blog later this evening or just after the 10 PM newscast.
